TO  THE  READER 

The  work  of  compiling  this  genealogy  was  begun  by  Mr. 
Brown  Thurston,  of  Portland,  Me.,  in  1888.  Although  at  that 
time  Mr.  Thurston  was  far  advanced  in  years  (74),  nevertheless, 
he  collected  many  facts  and  much  data,  and  awakened  consider- 
able interest  in  this  work.  Early  in  the  compilation  of  this  volume 
I  gave  Mr.  Thurston  much  assistance  by  personal  search  among 
probate  and  other  court  records,  by  reviewing  published  town 
histories,  by  gathering  names  from  the  vital  statistics  of  towns 
and  cities  and  by  personal  interviews  with  individuals  bearing  the 
Greenwood  name.  Since  Mr.  Thurston's  death,  which  occurred 
Apr.  18,  1900,  I  have  been  actively  engaged,  unassisted,  in  push- 
ing this  work  to  completion  and  I  feel  much  pride  in  what  I  have 
accomplished.  I  give  the  reader  of  this  volume  the  ancient  Eng- 
lish Greenwood  records,  which  cannot  be  other  than  of  deep  inter- 
est to  him.  By  these  records  an  unbroken  line  of  ancestry  can 
be  traced  from  the  present  day,  running  through  a  period  of  over 
700  years,  back  to  the  very  beginning  of  the  name  Greenwood.  It 
is  seldom,  indeed,  that  in  any  published  family  history  has  such  a 
work  as  this  been  accomplished.  The  English  records  do  not  con- 
tain a  list  of  every  Greenwood  who  has  descended  from  the  first 
head.  Such  a  list  would  fill  many  volumes,  but  the  pedigree  fur- 
nished gives  a  direct  line  of  descent  which  is  reliable  and  can  be 
substantiated.  That  the  name  Greenwood  had  its  beginning  with 
Wyomarus,  the  first  in  the  list  of  the  English  records,  there  can 
be  no  doubt.  The  earliest  pedigrees  affirm  it  and  the  earliest 
English  records  of  all  kinds  are  in  proof  of  the  fact.  I  have 
ascertained  and  give  the  exact  locality  where  Wyomarus  Green- 
wode  lived  and  there  are  to  be  found  in  this  volume  illustrations 
showing  home  places  of  his  immediate  descendants.  The  earliest 
Greenwood  wills  recorded  at  York,  England,  I  have  abstracted 
and  publish  in  this  work.  As  showing  the  varied  early  spelling  of 
the  name  Greenwood  and  in  throwing  light  upon  the  method  of 
living  in  ancient  times,  these  wills  are  of  exceeding  interest.  I 
have  obtained  and  given  in  this  work  an  extended  account  of  the 
life,  trial  and  execution  of  Rev.  John  Greenwood,  an  honored  an- 
cestor of  many  Greenwoods  in  America,  who  for  religious  con- 
victions suffered  death  in  England  by  the  hand  of  the  authorities 
of  the  English  Established  Church.  He  was  a  Separatist  and  he 
is  the  accredited  founder  of  the  Congregational  religion  as  prac- 
ticed today  in  New  England.

It  has  taken  much  time,  ])atience  and  expense  to  obtain  all  the 
English  information  found  in  this  volume  and  I  would  particularly 
thank  Mrs,  M,  E.  Gibson,  the  present  owner  of  Greenwood  Lee,  in 
Heptonstall,  Enf^.,  for  much  assistance  she  has  ^iven  me  in  col- 
lecting facts  in  Greenwood  history  and  concerning  her  own  home. 
My  thanks  for  assistance  are  also  due  Mr.  J.  Fred  Greenwood, 
of  Ilarworth,  in  Yorkshire,  Eng. 

It  is  surprising  what  a  great  amount  of  difficulty  a  compiler 
finds  in  a  work  of  this  character.  Many  families  there  are  that 
keep  no  records  of  births,  marriages  and  deaths.  In  such  cases 
town  records  must  be  searched  and  if  the  search  is  made  by  the 
clerk  of  the  town  a  fee  must  be  paid  for  the  service.  Many  mem- 
bers of  families  have  become  separated — children  have  grown  up 
and  gone  away.  Search  for  the  members  must  be  made ;  their 
location  is  often  doubtful  and  many  letters  of  inquiry  sent  out 
are  returned  to  the  writer  unclaimed.  The  heads  of  families  may 
know  something  of  their  own  births  and  marriages  but  very  little 
of  their  parents,  much  less  of  their  grand  parents  and  strictly 
nothing  of  their  great  grandparents  and  this  necessitates  personal 
search  by  the  compiler  of  church,  town  or  city  records.  After  a 
family  has  been  located  and  its  record  obtained  then  the  family 
must  be  placed  under  its  direct  line  of  descent  and  this  at  times 
requires  further  search  of  records. 

It  has  taken  years  of  hard,  diligent  labor  to  produce  this 
volume. 

I  see  no  reason  why  every  Greenwood  in  America  has  not  reason 
to  feel  satisfied  Avith  the  Greenwood  family  as  a  whole.  If  town 
records  in  rare  instances  reveal  a  Greenwood  name  on  the  list  of 
pauper  subjects  there  are  abundant  instances  that  testify  to  the 
perseverance,  thrift,  enterprise  and  capability  of  the  Greenwoods. 
This  volume  will  reveal  to  you  many  Greenwoods  who  have  won 
distinction  in  life  and  who  occupy  homes  of  beauty  and  abundance 
as  a  result  of  their  labors.  In  every  avocation  of  life  you  find  a 
Greenwood  name.  This  volume  will  tell  you  of  Greenwoods  who 
are  heads  of  educational  institutions,  of  Greenwoods  well  known  in 
the  ministry  of  the  Gospel ;  they  are  among  the  skillful  physicians 
of  the  country,  are  in  the  list  of  journalists  and  authors,  are  tal- 
ented lawyers,  are  members  of  state  legislatures,  are  at  the  head 
of  large  and  prosperous  manufacturing  plants  and  are  successful 
merchants.  Also  do  we  find  Greenwoods  who  are  pursuing  the 
healthful  avocations  of  tillers  of  the  soil. 

The  family  of  Greenwoods  is  not  as  large  as  many  others  in 
America,  yet  it  has  many  members. 

What  we  have  sought  in  this  volume  is  positive  accuracy. 
Matters  of  a  doubtful  nature  we  leave  unpublished.     Dates  and

names  we  verify  and  if  there  are  errors  in  this  work  they  come 
from  the  sources  of  our  information. 

Genealogy  is  not  a  new  study  in  life.  Burk  says,  "Those  only 
deserve  to  be  remembered  who  treasure  up  the  history  of  their 
ancestry."  It  was  not  beneath  the  consideration  of  the  creator  of 
man,  who  as  author  of  the  Bible,  very  carefully  instructed  the 
writer  of  the  book  of  Genesis  to  record  the  genealogy  of  Noah  and 
to  give  all  the  facts  that  made  it  necessary  to  so  effectually  wipe 
out  that  generation  of  man  from  the  earth,  and  with  equal  care,  to 
record  the  virtues  that  saved  his  own  family  from  the  same  de- 
struction. 

The  interest  in  genealogical  research  is  increasing  in  America 
as  is  shown  in  the  number  of  family  histories  being  published  and 
the  time  has  now  come  when  every  person  of  intelligence  cares  to 
know  something  of  his  ancestry'.  Prominent  men  of  today  are 
learning  of  their  ancestry  and  making  mention  of  it. 

It  seems  to  us  that  a  work  of  the  character  of  this  volume  can- 
not be  other  than  a  matter  of  great  interest  to  every  Greenwood. 
In  this  volume  he  finds  his  own  record  in  life.  The  records  in 
plain  readable  type  also  of  his  father,  mother,  brothers  and  sis- 
ters are  given  and  if  he  cares  to  go  back  further  here  are  the  life 
records  of  grandparents  and  great  grandparents  and  all  of  his 
ancestry  running  back  to  the  earliest  of  his  name.  What  a  book 
for  reference  this  is !  In  no  other  form  can  one  get  such  a  record 
— so  compact,  so  accessible,  so  complete.  We  believe  that  the 
time  is  at  hand  when  all  individual  life  records  are  to  be  more 
faithfully  kept  than  in  the  past  and  the  work  in  the  future  in 
compiling  a  volume  of  this  kind  will  be  made  less  difficult.

EXPLANATION 

The  names  of  Greenwoods  and  their  immediate  descendants  are 
numbered  consecutively  through  the  volume. 

The  small  figures  after  each  Greenwood  name  denote  the  gen- 
eration and  the  generations  begin  with  the  first  ancestor  in  this 
country. 

This  character  -f-  placed  before  any  name,  denotes  that  fur- 
ther on  in  the  book  the  same  number  will  be  found  and  same  name, 
in  larger  type,  placed  so  as  to  attract  attention  at  once.  Under 
these  figures  the  history  and  children  of  the  person  named  are 
given. 

The  grandchildren,  when  introduced  after  the  first  appear- 
ance of  the  name,  are  set  a  little  further  in  from  the  margin  than 
the  children. 

The  indexes  are  very  simple,  referring  to  every  name  by  num- 
ber. There  are  five  indexes.  The  first  contains  the  descendants  of 
Thomas  Greenwood  of  Newton  and  those  who  married  into  that 
family.  The  second  index  contains  descendants  of  Nathaniel  and 
Samuel  Greenwood  of  Boston,  the  third  refers  to  the  Virginia  fam- 
ily, the  fourth  the  Greenwoods  and  descendants  who  have  come  to 
America  since  the  early  pioneers  and  the  fifth  contains  names  I 
am  unable  to  connect  with  any  direct  line  of  ancestry.

AXCIENT  ENGLISH  RECORDS 

The  following  ancient  English  records  were  in  the  keeping  of 
James  Greenwood  of  York  in  1715  and  were  in  the  keeping  of 
Joseph  Greenwood  Clayton,  of  New  Laithes,  County  York,  Eng., 
in  1816.  The  first  part  is  written  upon  parchment  and  shows  a 
direct  line  of  descent  from  Wyomarus  [cater  to  Maud  the  Em- 
press] who  established  a  home  in  the  forest  in  Heptonstall,  in 
England,  overlooking  the  beautiful  Hebden  Valley,  1154,  and  is 
the  progenitor  of  the  Greenwood  family.  A  copy  of  these  records 
is  to  be  found  in  the  College  of  Arms,  London,  Eng.,  and  with 
these  records  is  a  drawing  of  the  arms  of  Wyomarus.

THE  GREENWOOD  ARMS 

A  ccMit  of  arms  may  be  defined  as  a  mark  of  dignity  or  distinc- 
tion descending  from  the  fatlier  to  the  son.  An  old  English  print 
says  that  the  intention  of  a  coat  of  arms  was  to  honor  and  adorn 
the  family  of  him  who  had  deserved  well  towards  his  country,  to 
make  that  person  more  worthy  and  famous  above  those  who  had 
not  done  service,  to  the  end  that  others  might  be  encouraged  to  do 
service  also.  Coats  of  arms  were  intended  also  to  establish  a  dif- 
ference in  lineage  between  the  son  of  the  noble  ancestor  so  that  the 
eldest  son  might  be  known  from  the  second  son,  he  from  the  third, 
and  so  on. 

The  ancient  Romans,  as  a  distinguishing  mark,  carried  an 
eagle.  The  ensign  of  the  French  (Gallia)  was  a  cock,  that  of  the 
Scandinavians  the  horse,  and  the  Persians  a  dove.  Constantine, 
the  first  Christian  emperor,  instituted  the  order  of  Chevaliers  and 
the  members  wore  on  their  breasts  the  ensign  of  the  cross.  From 
Constantine  individual  families  began  to  wear  distinguishing 
marks  and  from  these  marks  armorial  bearing,  or  coats  of  arms, 
originated. 

In  the  early  times  families  that  bore  marks  of  distinction  were 
those  which  had  been  given  the  right  to  bear  arms  and  the  right 
to  carry  arms  was  given  only  to  free  men,  the  gentry,  nobility,  and 
certain  ofl^cers.  The  privilege  of  bearing  arms  was  a  most  hon- 
orable distinction,  for  it  not  only  testified  to  the  rank  of  the  orig- 
inal founder  of  the  family,  but  it  also  testified  to  the  character  of 
the  founder  as  well.  No  dishonorable  family  was  ever  permitted 
to  bear  arms. 

Today  in  England  any  person  on  whom  an  honorary  rank  or 
title  has  been  bestowed  by  the  Sovereign  is  entitled  to  a  coat  of 
arms.  Any  subject  of  Great  Britain,  with  or  without  rank  or 
title,  or  any  business  firm  or  incorporated  body,  may  petition  for 
a  coat  of  arms  and  if  in  the  judgment  of  the  Earl  Marshal  in 
England,  the  Lyon  King  in  Scotland  and  the  Ulster  King  of  Arms 
in  Ireland,  who  each  have  authority  over  their  respective  oflSces, 
the  applicant  has  sufficient  standing  he  may  be  granted  a  coat  of 
arms. 

Armorial  bearings  are  of  two  kinds.  The  highest  class  consists 
of  a  shield  with  side  sujjporters,  and  a  crest,  along  with  a  motto. 
Only  members  of  the  Peerage  in  England  and  those  specially  priv- 
ileged are  entitled  to  use  the  supporters.  The  supporters  to  the 
royal  arms  of  England  are  a  lion  on  one  side  and  a  unicorn  on  the 

6 


The  Greenwood  Arms  7 

other  side  of  the  shield.  The  common  coat  of  arms  consists  of  a 
shield  with  various  devices  upon  its  face.  A  person  assigned  a 
coat  of  arms  usually  selects  his  own  devices  and  the  devices  chosen 
represent  in  some  way  a  history  of  the  family.  The  devices  chosen 
with  their  arrangement  upon  the  shield  is  protected  by  patent  and 
can  be  used  only  by  the  patentee.  The  cost  of  the  patent  in  Great 
Britain  is  quite  considerable. 

The  devices  in  the  Greenwood  coat  of  arms  consist  of  three 
silver  St.  Andrew's  crosses.  The  crosses  are  set  upon  a  dark  shield 
and  are  separated  by  a  silver  band  representing  two  rafters  of  a 
house  and  known  as  a  chevron.  The  band  is  ornamented  with 
sable  furs  or  ermines.  In  heraldry  the  description  of  these  arms 
reads :  "Sable,  a  chevron  ermines  between  3  saltiers  argent."  For 
ages  the  cross  has  been  known  as  an  emblem  of  religion  and  in 
these  arms  of  Wyomarus  Greenwode  they  represent  interest  in 
religious  matters  or  religious  zeal  displayed  by  Wyomarus  and  his 
family. 

A  coat  of  arms  in  families  shows  lineal  descent. 

Thoresby's  history  of  Leeds,  Eng.,  published  1715,  gives  the 
date  of  the  arms  of  Wyomarus  de  Greenwode  as  1154. 

Dictionary  of  heraldic  terms  used  in  Greenwood  coat  of  arms : 

Fess — wide  band  across  center  of  shield. 

Argent — silver. 

Sable — black. 

Spurrowles — pointed  stars. 

Chevron — 'band  shaped  like  rafters  of  a  building. 

Ermines — small  marks  of  the  shape  represented  in  the  cut. 

Saltier — cross  in  the  form  of  an  X. 

Crest — appendage  to  edge  of  shield. 

Demi-lion — half  lion. 

Rampant — standing  upright. 

Chief — upper  part  of  the  escutcheon.

The  Greenwood  Arms 


9 


Arms  of  Rev.  John  Greenwood,  who  was  rector  of  Brampton,  Norfolk 
County,  England,  from  1620  to  1663.  He  was  ejected  from  his  ministry  in 
1630  by  the  Parliamentary  party  but  returned  again.  His  daughters,  Anne 
and  Elizabeth,  were  born  at  Brampton.  His  will  proved  at  Norwich,  Eng., 
Oct.,  1663,  was  sealed  with  these  arms  and  in  the  will  was  a  reference  to  a 
ring  testator  wore,  on  the  stone  of  which  was  a  cut  of  the  same  armorial 
bearings.  He  was  son  of  Rev.  Christopher  Greenwood,  rector  of  Shottesham, 
County  Norfolk,  Eng.,  who  died  February,  1607-8,  and  whose  brother,  Edward 
Greenwood,  was  rector  of  Great  Dunham,  Swaffham,  County  Norfolk,  who 
died  1591.  Description  of  arms:  Sable,  a  chevron  ermines  between  3  saltiers 
argent;  crest,  a  demi-lion  rampant  or,  holding  in  his  paws  a  saltier  argent. 

The  above  are  descendants  of  Wyomarus  Greenwode  through  James  and 
wife, Michael. 

Joseph  Edmondson,  F,  S.  A.,  in  his  Complete  Body  of  Heraldry,  published, 
London,  Eng.,  1780,  refers  to  the  above  arms  as  being  in  use  at  Burg-Castle, 
in  Suffolk,  and  Castleton,  Greenwood  and  Norton-Bruin,  in  Oxfordshire. 

J.  Bernard  Burke  in  General  Armory  adds  Brookwood  Park,  County  Hants, 
as  having  Greenwoods  using  the  same  arms.

ABMS    OF    THE    GREEXWOODS    OF    SWARCLIFFE    HALL 

In  1612  one  John  Greenwood  described  as  a  French  merchant,  or  one  who 
traded  in  French  goods,  purchased  land  in  Wrenthorpe,  Eng.,  and  built  a 
convenient  brick  house  there  with  a  wall  of  brick  which  enclosed  3  or  4  acres 
of  his  estate.  The  house  became  known  as  Red  Hall.  Wrenthorpe  joined 
the  township  of  Stanley,  in  the  parish  of  Wakefield,  and  was  about  one  mile 
north  of  that  town.  This  branch  of  the  Greenwood  family  was  afterwards 
described  as  of  Stapleton,  41/2  miles  southeast  of  Pontefract.  They  claimed 
to  bear  arms  same  as  the  Westerton  Greenwoods,  with  slight  additions,  and 
to  be  of  that  family.  A  few  years  after  1612  Mr.  John  Greenwood  sold  his 
property  at  Wrenthorpe  and  later  years  the  Greenwoods  lived  at  Swarcliffe 
Hall,  4  miles  from  Ripley.  From  Dugdale's  Visitation  of  York  it  appears 
that  the  Greenwoods  of  Stapleton  descended  from  James  Greenwood,  a 
younger  brother  of  the  Greenwoods  of  Greenwood  Lee.  Description  of  arms: 
Percher,  sable  and  argent,  a  chevron  ermines  between  3  saltiers,  couped, 
counterchanged. 

J.  Bernard  Burke,  in  General  Armory,  thus  describes  the  above  arm:  Per 
chev.  sable  and  argent,  a  chev.  between  3  saltiers,  couped,  counterchanged; 
crest,  tiger  sejant.

ENGLISH  HISTORY  OF  THE  FAMILY  AXD 
ORIGIN  OF  THE  NAME 

For  full  seven  centuries  the  surname  Greenwood  has  been  in 
use  in  England.  The  early  English  Greenwood  records  given  in 
this  volume  and  a  long  Greenwood  pedigree  now  in  the  College  of 
Arms,  in  London,  Eng.,  show  the  progenitor  of  the  Greenwood 
family  in  England  to  have  been  a  Wyomarus  de  Greenwode.  All 
family  records  of  Anglo-Saxon  extraction  are  believed  to  run 
back  to  this  Wyomarus  and  the  name  Greenwood  may  be  regarded 
as  having  had  its  beginning  with  him.  This  Wyomarus  was  ca- 
terer to  Maud,  the  Empress,  mother  of  King  Henry  II,  who 
reigned  in  England  A.  D.  1154-1189.  Wyomarus  furnished  the 
provisions  for  the  household  of  the  Empress  Maud  (known  also 
as  Matilda)  and  was  of  the  titled  gentry  or  nobility  of  his  time. 
His  coat  of  arms,  which  all  Greenwoods  are  entitled  to  use,  appears 
in  this  volume. 

In  the  township  of  Heptonstall,  Eng.  (which  is  in  the  West 
Riding  of  Yorkshire),  lYo  miles  from  Heptonstall  village,  on  the 
old  Roman  highway,  which  leads  from  Heptonstall  to  Colne,  there 
stands  today  a  grand  old  hall  or  manor  house,  built  of  hand-hewed 
stone.  This  house,  which  is  of  such  ample  pretentions  as  to  be 
known  as  a  mansion,  has  for  many  centuries  been  standing  here. 
It  is  set  high  up  on  the  slope  of  what  is  known  as  Hardcastle 
Crags,  or  Hebden  Valley.  It  overlooks  this  beautiful  wooded 
valley  and  the  scene  presented  is  picturesque  and  enchanting. 
Many  tourists  are  attracted  to  this  spot  by  the  grandeur  of  the 
scene.  According  to  Thoresby's  history  of  Leeds,  published  1715, 
and  from  the  records  which  appear  in  this  volume,  this  mansion 
was  built  by  Wyomarus  or  his  immediate  descendants  and  was 
their  home  place.  The  mansion  with  its  buildings  and  land  at- 
tached is  known  as  Greenwood  Lee.  The  mansion  is  20  miles  due 
west  from  Leeds  and  is  2  miles  distant  from  the  flourishing  cotton 
manufacturing  town  of  Hebden  Bridge. 

Three-fourths  of  a  mile  from  Greenwood  Lee,  on  the  same  old 
Roman  road  leading  from  Heptonstall  to  Colne,  is  a  second  build- 
ing of  stone  and  is  known  as  High  Greenwood.  This  structure 
was  rebuilt  100  years  ago  and  is  now  much  changed  from  its  for- 
mer appearance.  In  the  neighborhood  of  Greenwood  Lee  and 
High  Greenwood  there  are  today  such  places  as  Gi'eenwood  Lee 
Wood,  High  Greenwood  Wood,   Greenwood  Lee   Clough,   Green

Hill  and  others,  and  the  public  records  of  Heptonstall  show  that 
these  places  were  formerly  included  in  what  was  once  known  as 
Greenwood.  It  was  a  little  scttleniemt  in  itself.  At  one  time  this 
tract  was  a  forest  and  this  little  settlement  took  its  name  from 
that  forest.  It  was  a  large  tract  of  green  wood,  of  waving  trees 
of  oak,  ash,  maple  and  birch  and  many  other  varieties  of  wood. 
Probably  the  forest  from  which  Greenwood  took  its  name  included 
the  whole  district  from  Stoneshay  Gate  to  Widdop  Gate  and  from 
the  right  side  of  the  highway  down  to  the  river  Hebden  in  the 
valley.  The  clearing  in  the  forest  was  begun  on  the  plateau 
skirting  the  valley.  Here  Greenwood  Lee  was  built.  It  is  pos- 
sible that  the  first  houses  were  of  wood  and  then  after  the  forest 
was  somewhat  cleared  Greenwood  Lee  was  constructed ;  then  fol- 
lowed the  construction  of  High  Greenwood,  the  Clough  house  and 
others.  This  settlement  of  Greenwood  was  one  of  the  oldest  in 
Heptonstall  and  the  Greenwoods  of  the  settlement  from  ancient 
times  down  to  the  present  day  have  ever  been  prominent  in  shap- 
ing the  history  of  that  old  town.  Turn  over  the  pages  of  history 
of  old  Heptonstall,  either  of  its  remote  past  or  immediate  present, 
and  the  name  Greenwood  stands  out  prominent  before  you. 
Whichever  way  you  turn  in  Heptonstall  you  are  confronted  by 
that  name.  The  largest  tax  payers  of  Heptonstall  have  ever  been 
Greenwoods,  while  the  recoixls  of  the  ancient  parish  church  of  the 
place  and  the  old  wills  recorded  at  York  show  generous  contribu- 
tions by  Greenwoods  to  the  church  and  large  bequests  to  public 
charity. 

Previous  to  the  year  1154  very  few  people  in  England  had 
more  than  one  name.  Wyomarus  was  known  only  as  Wyomarus. 
Surnames  were  introduced  into  England  by  the  Normans  after 
their  invasion,  in  1066,  and  many  family  names  have  originated 
in  England  since  that  time.  After  Wyomarus  had  established  his 
home  in  the  forest  at  Heptonstall,  and  a  little  settlement  of  his 
descendants  was  made  there,  he  became  known  as  Wyomarus  de 
Greenwod  (Wyomarus  of  Greenwood).  The  children  and  de- 
scendants of  Wyomarus  also  took  similar  names  and  were  known 
as  Bartram  de  Greenwod  (Bartram  of  Greenwood),  Robert  de 
Greenwod  (Robert  of  Greenwood)  and  so  on,  and  the  old  public 
records  of  Heptonstall  show  that  it  was  nearly  as  late  as  the  year 
1500  when  the  surname  Greenwood  became  full}'  established  and 
the  Latin  word  "de"  was  omitted.  Greenwood  is  a  place  name. 
The  family  takes  its  name  from  a  locality  and  that  locality  the 
green  wood  or  forest  at  Heptonstall.  It  is  evident  that  the  man- 
sion. Greenwood  Lee,  took  the  first  part  of  its  name  from  the 
settlement  Greenwood  and  the  last  part  of  its  name  (Lee)  from 
the  fact  that  its  location  was  sheltered  or  that  the  buildings  af- 
forded shelter  to  both  men  and  beasts.     Just  the  date  Greenwood

English  History  of  the  Family  and  Origin  of  Name     17 

Lee  was  built  there  are  no  records  that  show.  In  1S62  Green- 
wood Lee  is  mentioned  in  Heptonstall  public  records  as  being 
occupied  by  Thomas  de  Grenwod.  In  1379  Hegh  Grenewod 
(High  Greenwood)  is  mentioned.  There  are  no  earlier  public 
records  referring  to  these  buildings. 

Public  records  referring  to  the  Greenwoods  at  Greenwood  are 
of  much  interest.  From  the  earliest  public  court  records  we  find 
that  on  Nov.  22,  1274,  one  William  Grenehod  (Greenwood),  was, 
for  taking  bushwood  from  Erringden  forest,  fined  6  pence,  and 
according  to  the  record  a  pledge  was  given  by  Luvecock,  his 
brother,  that  it  would  not  occur  again.  In  the  following  year,  or 
Friday,  in  whit-week,  1275,  John  del  Greenwode  (John  of  the 
Greenwood)  was  fined  in  the  court  of  the  Lord  of  the  Manor  2 
shillings  for  the  escape  of  3  beasts  to  the  meadows  of  Rawtonstall. 
These  records  show  that  at  that  time  there  was  a  settlement  in  the 
forest  at  Greenwood  and  that  some  of  the  land  had  been  cleared, 
fenced  and  cultivated.  The  court  of  the  manor  was  held  at  Wake- 
field by  the  Earl  of  Warren,  or  John  de  Warren,  as  his  real  name 
was.  The  Earl  had  been  given  by  King  Henry  III  (1250)  free 
warren,  or  right  to  preserve  the  forests  for  game  in  Heptonstall, 
Wadsworth,  Rawtonstall,  Stansfield  and  Langfield  and  he  pun- 
ished all  intruders.  He  was  Lord  of  the  Manor  of  that  district 
and  once  when  his  right  was  questioned  he  unsheated  his  sword  and 
stretching  out  his  arm  declared  that  it  was  that  weapon  that  gave 
him  his  right. 

In  the  year  1379  a  poll  tax  was  issued  by  King  Richard  II 
upon  all  persons  in  England  over  the  age  of  16  years  in  every 
parish  or  township.  The  tax  list  is  of  interest  as  showing  who 
was  living  at  Greenwood  at  the  time.    The  list  follows : 

Ricardus  de  Grenwod  &  vx.  iiij  d.  (Richard  of  Greenwood 
and  wife  4  pence.) 

Thomas  de  Grenewod  &  vx.  iiij  d.  (Thomas  of  Greenwood  and 
wife  4  pence.) 

Thomas  de  Grenewod  &  vx.  iiij  d.  (Thomas  of  Greenwood  and 
wife  4  pence.) 

Thomas  de  Grenewod  iiij  d.     (Thomas  of  Greenwood,  single.) 

From  the  above  list  it  would  appear  that  4  Greenwoods  con- 
stituted the  inhabitants  of  Greenwood  in  1379 — three  of  the 
Greenwoods  were  married  and  their  wives  living  and  one  single 
person  liable  to  a  tax  on  account  of  age.  One  of  these  Green- 
Woods  was  named  Richard  and  three  were  named  Thomas.  Besides 
these  married  Greenwoods  there  may  have  been  children  under  the 
age  of  16.  Each  was  taxed  4  pence  and  evidently  the  tax  had  no 
bearing  on  the  property  each  held. 

The  records  of  the  Court  of  the  Manor  show  a  Richard  de 
Grenewod  as  a  juryman  in  Oct.,  1379,  and  in  1380  a  Richard,  son 


18  Greenwood  Genealogies 

of  Thomas  dc  Gronewod,  whs  a  juryman  at  both  April  and  October 
Turns.  At  an  inquisition  held  at  Halifax,  l'Kj5^,  a  Thomas  de 
Grenewod  is  named  and  described  as  the  father  of  William  and 
was  probably  living  at  Greenwood  Lee.  A  Tiioinas  de  Grenewod 
was  a  juror  of  the  Manor  Court  held  20th  of  October,  1413,  and 
was  then  living;  at  Hiffh  Greenwood.     His  name  was  second  on  the 



panel,  a  position  he  continued  to  occupy  1433  and  1434.  Thomas 
dc  Grenewod,  the  single  man  on  the  poll  list,  may  have  been  the 
Thomas  dc  Grcnwod  whose  name  ap])ears  on  a  jury  list  3d  of  Oct., 
1434,  when  he  is  last  on  the  list  of  those  empaneled  at  the  local 
Turn. 

Public  records  show  that  soon  after  1382  that  the  Monks  of 
Lewes,  in  Yorkshire,  had  some  control  over  the  estates  at  Green- 
wood, and  those  adjoining,  and  drew  revenue  from  them,  the  right 
being  given  by  the  Earl  of  Warren. 

In  1433  a  John  de  Grenewod  was  living  at  Greenwood  Lee  and 
was  the  wealthiest  landlord  in  Heptonstall,  for  he  was  paying  a 
tax  of  24s.  91/>d.  annually  in  the  way  of  rent,  which  was  consid- 
ered large  as  money  was  then  valued. 

On  Dec.  16,  1439,  the  18th  year  of  the  reign  of  King  Henry 
VI,  a  rental  was  made  in  Heptonstall  by  order  of  the  Proctor  of 
the  Priory  of  Lewes  and  from  this  rental  it  is  learned  that  one 
Thomas  Michell  (Mitchell)  was  then  living  at  "Heghegrenewodde" 
(High  Greenwood)  and  paying  rent  to  the  Priory  of  Lewes  of  6s. 
2d.  per  year.  The  Mitchells  had  evidently  married  into  the  Green- 
wood family.  Formerly  they  occupied  adjoining  estates.  They 
are  of  Norman  descent.  John  de  Grenewodde  of  Grenewoddlee 
(Greenwood  Lee),  the  largest  occupier  in  Heptonstall,  paid  an 
annual  rent  for  Greenwood  Lee  of  6s.  T^^^d. ;  for  lands  and  tene- 
ments called  Gloghehous  (Clough  house),  which  is  situated  near 
Greenwood  Lee  on  the  far  side  of  Greenwood  T^ce  Clough,  to  the 
left  of  the  road,  15s.;  for  a  close  of  land  called  "Gyllotraide," 
4d. ;  land  and  tenement  at  "Robedshag"  (Robert  Shaw),  near  the 
slack  Baptist  chapel,  17d. ;  for  other  lands  and  tenements  in  Hep- 
tonstall, not  described  by  name,  17d. 

Richard  de  Grenewode,  probably  son  of  John,  the  same  year 
was  holding  lands  and  tenements  at  Coldcn-Ing,  for  which  he  paid 
yearly  rent  20d.  He  also  held  one  parcel  of  land  called  "Walker- 
wyfynge,"  for  which  he  paid  4l/.'d. 

William  de  Grenewodde  held  lands  and  tenements  in  Learing, 
in  Heptonstall,  for  which  he  paid  yearly  rent  20d.  He  also  rented 
"Esthap  More"  (East-up-Moor)  for  which  he  paid  20d.,  and  also 
one  acre  of  land  taken  from  waste  for  which  he  paid  4d.  per  year. 
He  is  probiibly  the  same  William  Greenwood  who  was  constable  of 
Heptonstall  in  1461.     There  was  also  a  second  Richard  de  Grene- 


X 


English  History  of  the  Family  and  Origin  of  Name     19 

w'odde  who  held  lands  and  tenements  in  Heptonstall  township,  for 
which  he  paid  3s.  Ql/ijd. 

The  rental  list  of  1439  shows  that  there  were  only  12  persons 
in  the  township  of  Heptonstall  at  that  time  paying  rent.  The 
combined  rent  of  the  4  Greenwoods  amounted  to  34s.  SV^d.  The 
combined  rent  of  the  other  8  persons  was  22s.  8%d.  The  largest 
tax  payer  was  John  de  Grenewodde  (John  of  Greenwood)  ;  second 
largest  in  Heptonstall,  John  Pygehils  (Pickles),  who  paid  for 
land  and  tenements  in  the  town,  7s. 

The  old  English  public  records  show  that  very  early  the  Green- 
woods of  Greenwood,  in  Heptonstall,  began  to  scatter  to  the  sur- 
rounding districts,  marrying  and  intermarrying  there,  accumu- 
lating property  and  establishing  homes.  At  one  of  the  Turns  of 
the  Court  of  the  Manor  one  Roger  Greenwood  of  Sowerby  (6 
miles  from  Greenwood),  in  1326,  was  fined  3d.  for  his  beasts 
unlawfully  eating  from  the  herbage  of  the  forest.  The  record 
reads:  "Rog'us  de  Grenwod,  p.  exh.  best,  iij  d."  In  1432  a  lease, 
which  was  in  Latin,  was  made  for  40  years  of  a  certain  property 
called  "Huldisworth  Inge,"  in  the  township  of  Ovenden,  near 
Halifax,  at  20s.  per  year,  to  William  Greenwood  of  Mixenden,  by 
William  Otes  and  others.  In  1509  John  Greenwood  with  Peter 
Crabtree,  two  clothiers  (manufacturers  of  cloth),  acquired  from 
Richard  Young  and  Margaret,  his  wife,  what  is  know  as  Old  Town 
farm,  in  Wadsworth,  and  the  adjoining  one  known  as  Crabtree 
farm,  in  Wadsworth.  In  1524  both  these  men  paid  a  subsidy  of 
20s.  each  to  King  Henry  VIII  and  in  later  years  they  were  both 
said  to  have  been  accused  of  using  flocks  in  the  manufacture  of 
cloth.  On  his  death  John  Greenwood  was  succeeded  in  business 
by  his  son  William. 

In  1563  William  Greenwood,  a  merchant  or  chapman,  of 
Wadsworth,  purchased  from  Wm.  Brigg  and  Henry  Brigg,  his 
son  and  heir  apparent,  land  called  Potter  Cliff,  at  Old  Town,  in 
Wadsworth,  and  about  the  same  time  he  bought  lands  called 
Hirst  from  Henry  and  Charles  Farrer,  in  Old  Town.  He  was 
active  in  church  matters  for  in  the  Heptonstall  church  registers, 
da/ted  Apr.  21,  1572,  he  signs  an  entry  to  the  effect  that  120  organ 
pipes  had  been  laid  up  in  the  church  coffer. 

Greenwood  Lee,  from  the  time  of  its  construction,  passed  down 
through  an  unbroken  succession  of  generations  of  Greenwood 
owners  until  1642,  when  it  passed  out  of  Greenwood  possession. 
The  last  Greenwood  occupant  of  the  estate  was  Rev.  Charles 
Greenwood.  He  was  rector  of  Thornhill,  and  through  the  influ-

of  Heptonstall.*  He  was  son  of  James  Greenwood  of  Sowerby,  a 
direct  descendant  of  the  Greenwoods  of  Greenwood  Lee.  His 
mother  was  Cecilia,  daughter  of  Chas.  RadclifF,  of  Todmorden. 
He  left  no  living  heirs.  The  will  of  the  Rev.  Charles  Greenwood, 
proved  July  1-i,  164'2,  provided  for  the  establishment  of  a  free 
grammar  school  in  Heptonstall,  the  buildings  for  which  he  had 
erected,  t  He  also  bequeathed  £100  to  be  lent  and  put  forth  from 
year  to  year  to  ye  poor  people  inhabiting  within  ye  township  of 
Heptonstall  to  succeeding  ages  for  ever,  the  better  to  enable  them 
to  live  by  their  labors  in  their  honest  vocations."  He  gave  also 
money  for  the  founding  of  two  fellowships  and  two  scholarships  in 
University  College,  in  Oxford,  of  which  he  had  been  fellow,  and 
1500  pounds  more  toward  building  of  a  new  quadrangle  at  the 
college,  but  the  college  was  wronged  of  these  bequests  through  the 
misconduct  of  the  executors. 

In  1650  Greenwood  Lee  was  twice  sold.  For  a  time  it  was  in 
possession  of  the  family  of  Sutcliff.  In  1760  it  was  purchased  by 
Abraham  Gibson  and  at  present  it  is  occupied  by  Mrs.  M.  E. 
Gibson,  widow,  and  her  son  Abraham,  who  are  direct  heirs  of  the 
Abraham  first  mentioned. 

The  last  Greenwood  occupant  of  High  Greenwood  was  one 
William  Grenewod,  whose  will  was  proved  at  York  Apr.  2,  1522, 
and  his  descendants.  In  1559  High  Greenwood  was  purchased  by 
a  Mr.  Mitchell  and  it  has  remained  in  the  Mitchell  family  ever 
since,  having  been  passed  down  from  one  generation  to  another. 
Both  Greenwood  Lee  and  High  Greenwood  are  today  used  as 
farmsteads.  Both  estates  join  and  both  extend  from  the  moors  at 
the  summit  of  the  hills  to  the  valley  below. 

*It  appears  from  a  manuscript  in  the  British  Museum,  No.  797  of  the 
Harleian  mss.,  being  a  collection  relating  to  Moreley  Hundred,  that  John 
Warren,  Earl  of  Surrey,  claimed  free  warren  in  Heptonstall  bv  charter  dated 
37th  of  King  Henry  III,  A.  D.  1253.  The  right  of  the  manor  passed  into 
other  hands  for  by  an  inquisition  taken  at  Pontefract  25th  Aug.,  5th  and  6th 
Philip  and  Mary,  or  A.  D.,  1558,  that  Sir  Henry  Savile,  Knight,  died  siezed  in 
fee  tail  of  the  manor  of  Heptonstall  and  from  him  it  passed  by  degrees  to  Sir 
George  Savile,  of  RuflFord.  In  the  5th  King  Charles,  1629,  court  was  held  at 
Heptonstall  by  Charles  Greenwood,  Clerk,  Rector  of  Thornhill,  Lord  of  the 
Manor  of  Heptonstall.  Later  the  Right  Honorable,  the  Earl  of  Scarborough, 
became  Lord  of  the  Manor  of  Heptonstall. 

One  of  the  descendants  of  Charles  Greenwood  was  cornet  to  Captain  Gas- 
coigne  and  another,  Ferdinand  Greenwood,  was  lieutenant  of  horse  in  the 
service  of  King  Charles  the  First,  and  was  slain  at  Newark. 

fThe  .school  building  provided  for  by  the  will  of  Rev.  Charles  Greenwood  is 
yet  in  use  and  stands  close  by  the  old  churchyard  in  Heptonstall.  The  school 
house  was  given  as  a  free  gift  to  the  people  of  Heptonstall  and  land  and  prop- 
erty at  Colden,  in  Heptonstall,  was  endowed  for  the  perpetual  care  of  the 
building  and  continual  salary  of  the  master  of  the  school.  The  executors  of 
tlie  will  consisted  of  John  Greenwood,  son  of  Robert  Greenwood,  John  Green- 
wood of  Elfaburgh  Hall,  William  Mitchell,  Thomas  Greenwood  of  Learing 
and  Richard  Robertshaw  and  their  heirs.

and  Kirkstall  Ahhey,  which  is  a  short  distance  away.  In  excavating  for  rc])airs 
of  the  house  building  stones  were  found  resembling  those  of  the  Abbey,  built 
11.57.  Some  stone  lions,  evidently  used  as  torch  holders  are  on  the  premises 
and  ha\e  been  placed  around  the  foot  of  an  oak  tree,  yet  living,  estimated  to 
be  TOO  or  SOO  years  t)ld.  The  house  has  been  rebuilt  and  is  changed  from  its 
original  ai)])carancc.     It  is  now  occupied  by  Mr.  J.   U.  Cross. 


English  History  of  the  Family  and  Origin  of  Name     21 

The  building's  now  at  Greenwood  Lee  consist  of  a  large  two 
story  stone  house,  about  30  x  40  feet  in  size,  with  a  long  ell  60  x  30 
feet,  also  two  stories.  The  house  has  five  gables ;  roofs  covered 
with  slate  or  thin  stone  and  the  house  is  especially  noticeable  for 
the  large  number  of  chimney  tops  and  stone  balls  above  the  roof. 
Back  of  the  main  house  is  a  second  stone  house  40  x  40  feet  in  size, 
two  stories  high,  with  a  gable,  slated  or  stone  roof.  There  is  a 
large  stone  barn  on  the  premises  unique  for  its  architecture.  It  is 
only  one  story  high  and  has  a  high  pointed  roof.  It  is  100  feet 
long  and  60  feet  wide.  In  a  stone  over  the  porch  of  the  large  house 
is  cut  the  figures  1712.  This  porch  was  rebuilt  that  year  by  the 
SutclifFes.  Otherwise  the  exteriors  of  all  the  buildings  are  as  they 
were  originally  made  except  new  glass  windows  and  chimney  pots. 
The  estimated  age  of  the  present  buildings  at  Greenwood  Lee  is 
500  years.  Probably  the  present  structures  were  built  about  the 
year  1400  and  are  an  enlargement  of  the  original  or  first  buildings 
bearing  the  same  name.  High  Greenwood  when  rebuilt  is  believed 
to  have  been  standing  since  the  year  1260. 

According  to  Tappan's  history  of  England,  as  late  as  1500 
the  poor  people  in  the  country  lived  in  cottages  made  of  sticks 
and  clay.  There  were  no  real  chimneys,  but  only  a  hole  for  the 
smoke  to  go  out.  With  Greenwood  Lee,  High  Greenwood  and  the 
Clough  house,  large  buildings  of  stone,  the  Greenwoods  of  Green- 
wood may  be  regarded  as  wealthy  people  for  their  time. 

Ralph  Thoresby  in  his  history  of  Leeds,  Eng.,  and  the  West 
Outriding  of  Yorkshire,  published  1715,  and  Whitaker  in  an  edi- 
tion of  Leeds,  published  1816,  both  refer  to  a  place  known  as  New 
Laithes  as  famous  for  its  long  Greenwood  occupancy.  Thoresby 
says  of  New  Laithes :  "Here  for  many  years  resided  the  very 
ancient  family  of  Greenwood  descended  from  Wyomarus,  who 
flourished  ano.  1154,  cater  to  Mawd  the  Empress."  This  New^ 
Laithes  is  the  small  village  5  miles  north-west  of  Leeds,  near  the 
river  Aire  in  the  township  of  Newiay.  New  Laithes  hall,  or  manor 
house,  is  yet  standing,  but  no  Greenwoods  or  their  descendants  are 
now  living  there.  New  Laithes  hall  came  into  possession  of  the 
Greenwoods  as  early  as  1180  and  was  occupied  by  a  Charles 
Greenwood  as  late  as  1816.  On  Apr.  13,  1670,  the  estate  was 
sold  by  a  James  Greenwood  to  Thomas  Lord  Viscount  Savile,  Earl 
of  Sussex,  but  the  estate  was  repurchased  by  a  Joseph  Greenwood, 
who  died  there  in  1728. 

The  Empress  Maud,  with  whose  household  Wyomarus  de 
Greenwod  was  connected  was  daughter  of  King  Henry  I,  the  third 
of  the  Norman  kings  to  rule  England.  While  still  a  child  she 
married  the  Emperor  of  Germany ;  that  person  dying  she  was  mar- 
ried to  Geoffrey,  Count  of  Anjou,  a  Frenchman.     Her  mother  was 


22  Greenwood  Genealogies 

known  as  "Good  Mjiud,"  daughter  of  the  King  of  Scotland,     By 
Geoffrey  slie  had  a  son  who  became  King  Henry  II  of  Enghind. 

The  early  English  records  which  appear  in  this  volume  have 
been  passed  down  from  one  generation  of  Greenwoods  to  the  next 
succeeding.  In  the  year  1700  the  records  were  in  the  keeping  of 
James  Greenwood  of  York;  in  1815,  they  were  in  the  hands  of 
Joseph  Greenwood  Clayton,  of  New  Laithes.  (See  Whitaker's 
History  of  Leeds.)  The  records  are  in  two  parts.  The  first  part 
is  upon  parchment.  The  second  part  is  in  the  autograph  of  Sir 
William  Dugdale.  By  these  records  every  descendant  of  Thomas 
Greenwood  of  Newton,  Mass.,  can  trace  an  unbroken  line  of  an- 
cestry extending  over  a  period  of  700  years  and  through  many 
generations.  The  line  of  descent  in  the  English  records  from 
Thomas  of  Newton  runs  through  John  Greenwood,  the  priest,  who 
was  great  grandparent  of  Thomas. 

The  old  church  at  Heptonstall  (Thomas  a'  Becket),  at  which 
all  Greenwoods  of  the  ])arish  worshipped,  was  built  as  early  as 
1260,  but  is  now  in  ruins.  It  was  disused  in  1854<.  An  effort  is 
being  made  to  perpetually  preserve  the  now  standing  walls  of  the 
old  stone  structure  and  contributions  for  this  purj^ose  are  solicited 
from  all  interested  persons.  The  Vicar  of  the  Heptonstall  Parish 
Society,  Heptonstall,  Eng.,  receives  subscriptions.  The  reg- 
isters of  the  old  church  run  back  only  to  1593.  The  first 
Greenwood  interment  entries  arc:  March  20,  1593,  twin  children 
of  William  Grenwod,  Wardsworth ;  March,  1594,  infant  of  Rich- 
ard Grenwod,  of  Ayringden ;  Apr.  10,  1594,  John,  son  of  John 
Grenwod,  of  Stansfield;  June  7,  1594,  wife  of  Ric.  Grenwod  of 
Lang;  June  11,  1594,  infant  of  Simion  Grenwod. 

No  Greenwood  marriages  were  recorded  in  1593,  but  in  1594 
there  are  two:  May  5,  Matthew  Grenwod  and  Jane  Buckley  and 
Richard  Grenwood  and  Agnes  Grenwood.  In  1599  these  baptisms 
appear,  the  first  in  the  registers:  July  15,  Grace,  dau.  of  John 
Greenwood  of  Wadd. ;  22d,  Doriti,  dau.  of  William  Greenwood ; 
22d,  Grace,  dau.  of  Thomas  Greenwood;  Aug.  12,  John,  son  of 
Simion  Grenwod  of  Wad. 

A  John  Grenewode  was  clerk  (in  Holy  orders)  of  the  Hepton- 
stall Church  in  1439,  a  Sir  John  Grcnwodde,  curate,  in  1531,  and 
Thomas  Greenwood,  of  Elpiiaborough  Hall,  officiated  1712-1744. 
He  died  1748.  A  gallery  at  the  west  end  of  the  north  nave  of  this 
church  was  called  High  Greenwood  loft,  but  when  erected  is  not 
known. 

In  the  gallery  of  the  tower  of  the  new  church  of  the  Hepton- 
stall parish  society  at  Heptonstall,  is  a  marble  tablet  placed  in 
memory  of  a  John  Greenwood,  whose  death  occurred  June  16, 
1823,  aged  81,  in  recognition  of  his  gift  to  charity.     Names  of

dead  and  many  of  them  are  Greenwoods.  The  new  church  of  Hei)tonstall 
society  is  shown  in  the  background;  the  free  school  founded  by  Lord  Charles 
Greenwood,  164:2,  is  on  the  extreme  right.

the  wives  by  his  three  marriages  and  those  of  his  children  are  also 
given. 

A  John  Greenwood,  of  Cottingly,  as  shown  by  a  deed  dated 
Feb.  20,  1598,  left  the  sum  of  £40  to  be  lent  from  year  to  year 
for  ever,  to  the  poor  of  Heptonstall  parish  and  £20  to  the  poor 
of  Bradford-dale.  Paul  Greenwood  of  Old  Town,  Wadsworth, 
left  20  shilling  a  year  for  the  poor  people  of  Wadsworth  and  20 
shillings  a  year  for  the  minister  at  Heptonstall. 

John  Greenwood,  of  the  Learings,  in  Heptonstall,  by  his  will 
dated  Feb.  10,  1687,  left  an  annuity  of  20s.  for  the  minister  of 
Heptonstall  Church  and  one  of  20s.  for  the  purpose  of  apprentic- 
ing a  poor  man's  child. 

John  Greenwood,  of  the  Hippings,  in  Stansfield,  by  will  dated 
Dec.  13,  1705,  left  20s.  yearly  forever  to  the  minister  at  Hepton- 
stall for  the  preaching  of  a  sermon  the  first  Wednesday  in  August 
yearly. 

Referring  to  the  number  of  Greenwoods  now  living  in  Hepton- 
stall vicinity  a  public  writer  says :  "In  the  Calderdale  district, 
from  Halifax  to  Todmorden,  the  number  of  Greenwoods  is  posi- 
tively amazing.  One  cannot  take  up  a  newspaper,  or  attend  some 
public  or  social  function,  or  visit  the  homes  of  the  people,  but  the 
name  of  Greenwood  stands  out  in  numbers  almost  like  the  stars  in 
the  firmament ;  and  when  one  remembers  that  all  these  came  from 
that  original  stock  found  at  Greenwood,  in  Heptonstall,  some  cen- 
turies ago  the  thought  cannot  fail  to  be  brimful  of  significance." 


ANCIENT  GREENWOOD  WILLS 

The  very  earliest  Greenwood  wills  recorded  at  York,  Eng.,  are 
the  following,  which  are  interesting  as  showing  the  great  variety 
in  the  spelling  of  the  name,  and  they  also  throw  light  upon  the 
method  of  living  in  those  early  years.  The  number  of  persons 
bearing  the  Christian  names  of  John,  James,  William  and  Thomas 
in  the  Greenwood  family  is  remarkable.  "Sir"*  in  these  wills  de- 
notes a  clergyman.  The  recording  of  wills  at  York  began  in  1389.

9,  1525,  a  commission  was  directed  to  the  Dean  of  Pontefract  to 
prove  the  will. 

The  will  of  John  Greenwood,  of  Greenwood  Lee,  dated  Sept. 
22,  1552.  He  was  son  of  James  Greenwood  and  had  a  brother 
and  son  named  James  and  other  children  named  Robert,  Henry, 
John,  Lancelott  and  Christabell.  His  wife  was  named  Jenet.  His 
children  were  young  and  were  placed  under  guardianship  of  his 
father,  James  Greenwood.  John  Greenwood,  of  Golden,  was  an- 
other relative,  also  Thomas  Greenwood,  of  Learing.  He  places 
his  inward  and  outward  debts  in  the  hands  of  John  Greenwood,  of 
Golden,  and  Thomas  Greenwood,  of  Learing.  Testator  devises  a 
certain  amount  of  timber  about  Greenwood  Lee  and  Clough 
House  to  Sir  Robert  Bentley  and  James  Greenwood,  his  son,  and 
other  of  his  children.  To  his  brother  James  he  bequeaths  timber 
for  one  house.  His  executors  were  Robert,  John  Henry,  Lancelott 
and  Christabel,  his  children,  under  care  of  James  Greenwood, 
father  of  testator,  until  they  come  of  age.  Witnesses — Richard 
Horsfall,  John  Greenwood,  Laurence  Bentley,  Adam  Farrar  and 
John  Soothill.    Will  proved  Nov.  3,  1552. 

On  Febr.  3,  1553,  Thomas  Greenwood,  of  Greenwood  Lee,  made 
his  will.  He  was  son  of  William  Greenwood  and  brother  of  John 
Greenwood,  of  Golden.  His  wife  was  named  Margaret  and  they 
had  one  son  named  John  both  of  whom  he  makes  his  executors. 
Evidently  there  was  some  relationship  with  the  SutclifFes,  of  May- 
royd,  for  he  leaves  to  Alice  SutclifFe  one  best  cow  and  to  her  sister, 
Grace,  two  cows,  and  in  addition  £6.  10s.  2d.  the  value  of  a  debt 
due  to  him  from  John  Sutcliff'e,  of  Mayroyd,  their  brother.  He 
also  gave  to  William  Sutcliff'e,  his  servent,  "a  pair  of  lomes  and 
a  lether  dublet."  Witnesses — Sir  Gilbert  Stansfield,  curate  of 
Heptonstall,  William  Mitchell,  Nicholas  Whitaker,  William 
Shackleton,  Robert  Eland.     Proved  Sept.  3,  1554  by  the  exors. 

The  will  of  John  Greenwood,  of  Mixenden,  near  Halifax,  dated 
June  30,  1556,  proved  May  20,  1557,  mentions  his  children  Wil- 

'According  to  E.  M.  Tappan's  History  of  England,  as  late  as  1558,  even 
among  the  well  to  do,  such  articles  as  a  feather  bed,  a  pair  of  tongs,  a  brass 
dish  or  a  pair  of  blankets  would  be  handed  down  by  will,  and  from  this  we 
know  that  people  looked  upon  these  things  as  being  of  great  value.

Dec.  1,  1551,  James  Grenewod,  in  parish  of  Heptonstall,  wills:

*"Nambrey"  was  probably  a  book  of  names  or  family  register  of  births, 
marriages  and  deaths.  The  spelUng  of  our  forefathers  was  peculiar  as  com- 
pared with  present  day  methods.  "Nam,"  the  first  syllable  of  the  word,  may 
have  come  from  the  Anglo-Saxon  word  Noma,  meaning  name.  "Brey"  may 
have  been  taken  from  the  Anglo-Saxon  word  Braco,  signifying  breath,  vapor, 
fragrance  or  odor.  With  this  attachment  nambrey  would  appear  to  be  a 
book  of  names  with  fragrant  odors. 


EXECUTION  OF  JOHN  GREENWOOD 

It  will  be  of  interest  to  every  Greenwood  to  learn  of  the  execu- 
tion in  England  of  John  Greenwood  as  a  Puritan.  He  was  a 
oraduate  of  Cambridge  University  in  England,  a  clergyman  in 
the  Established  Ciiurch,  and  the  very  first  to  separate  from  that 
cliurch  and  found  the  religious  doctrine  known  as  Puritanism  or 
Congregationalism.  He  labored  for  simplicity  of  religious  forms. 
Seven  years  he  suffered  the  privations  of  close  prison  confinement 
and  finally  on  the  sixth  of  April,  1593,  with  his  co-worker,  Henry 
Barrowe,  was  taken  from  jail  and  hanged.  That  little  band  of 
Pilgrims  that  landed  at  Plymouth,  Mass.,  in  1620,  were  his  fol- 
lowers— they  had  worshipped  at  the  church  he  founded — that  band 
of  Puritans  that  landed  in  America  and  founded  Boston  were  be- 
lievers in  the  doctrine  he  was  first  to  teach.  The  religious  teach- 
ings of  John  Greenwood  rapidly  spread  in  England  and  in  1640 
occurred  the  civil  war  in  which  the  Puritans  under  Oliver  Cromwell 
as  leader  overthrew  the  English  church  and  government  and  es- 
tablished in  England  the  right  of  the  Puritans  to  existence  in 
that  country.  Persecution  of  the  Puritans  ceased  for  a  time  in 
England  after  Cromwell  established  himself  as  ruler  of  that  coun- 
try. But  that  little  band  of  Pilgrims  at  Plymouth,  that  band  of 
Puritans  at  Boston,  those  followers  who  wended  their  way  to  Vir- 
ginia and  Maryland — they  brought  to  America  the  teachings  of 
John  Greenwood — the  separation  of  church  and  state — and  if 
America  owes  its  greatness,  its  progress,  and  its  achievements  to 
one  principle  in  government  more  than  another  it  is  that  in 
America  every  American  can  kneel  at  the  altar  of  his  own  faith, 
and  worship  God  according  to  the  dictates  of  his  own  conscience. 
The  state  in  America  is  separated  from  the  church.  American 
government  tolerates  no  single  form  of  religious  worship  but  shel- 
ters and  protects  alike  all.  John  Greenwood  taught  that  there 
could  be  but  one  head  to  the  church  and  that  head  was  not  the 
Queen  but  Christ,  and  that  there  could  be  no  law  for  the  govern- 
ment of  the  church  other  than  what  the  Scriptures  contained. 
The  execution  of  John  Greenwood  was  in  the  reign  of  Queen  Eliza- 
beth. 

John  Greenwood,  b.  15.56,  entered  Corpus  Christie  (or  Benct) 
College,  Cambridge,  Mar.  18,  1577-8,  a  thcalogical  student,  I'e- 
ceivcd  his  Bachelor's  degree  1580-1,  was  ordained  deacon  of  the 
English  Established  Church  by  the  Bishop  of  London  and  priest 

30 


Execution  of  John  Greenwood  31 

by  the  Bishop  of  Lincoln,  and  for  5  years  labored  in  the  English 
Church,  in  Norfolk  County.  What  led  to  a  change  in  his  religious 
belief  is  unknown  but  he  was  deprived  of  his  benefice  and  began 
holding  secret  religious  services  at  the  home  of  Lord  Robert  Rich, 
of  Rockford,  Essex  County,  who  was  interested  in  his  doctrine. 
Soon  Lord  Rich  and  a  clergyman  named  Robert  Wright,  who  was 
associated  with  John  Greenwood,  Avere  arrested  and  thrown  into 
prison.  Mr.  Greenwood  then  went  to  London  where  he  formed  a 
secret  congregation  at  the  house  of  one  Henry  Martin  at  St. 
Andrews.  Here,  early  in  October,  1586,  he  was  arrested  and 
lodged  in  the  Clink  prison  while  conducting  a  service. 

There  had  preceded  Greenwood  at  Cambridge  by  a  little  more 
than  10  years  a  man  of  marked  ability,  by  name  of  Henry  Bar- 
rowe,  third  son  of  Thomas  Barrowe,  Esq.,  of  Shipdam,  Norfolk, 
by  his  second  wife,  Mary.  He  entered  Cambridge  Nov.  22,  1565, 
receiving  his  degree  of  Bachelor  of  Arts  1569-70,  became  a  lawyer 
and  practiced  in  Her  Majesty's  courts.  He  had  become  interested 
in  the  religious  teachings  of  John  Greenwood,  and  hearing  of 
Greenwood's  arrest  he  visited  Greenwood  on  Sunday,  Nov.  19, 
1586,  between  9  and  10  o'clock,  at  the  Clink.  Here  with  no  pre- 
tense of  legal  warrant  Barrowe  was  arrested  and  locked  in  with 
Greenwood.  A  few  days  later  both  Greenwood  and  Barrowe  were 
removed  to  the  Fleet  prison,  where  their  quarters  were  close,  and 
deprived  of  proper  food,  sufficient  warmth  and  many  necessities  of 
life  they  were  kept  in  confinement  for  7  years.  Many  times  during 
their  imprisonment  Greenwood  and  Barrowe  were  taken  before  the 
authorities  of  the  English  Church  and  questioned  as  to  their  re- 
ligious belief.  Such  an  examination  of  Greenwood  took  place  first 
at  the  palace  (1586)  before  the  Bishop  of  London.  Asked  by  the 
Bishop  if  he  believed  in  baptism.  Greenwood  replied  that  he  did. 
Asked  if  he  did  not  have  a  son  unbaptized.  Greenwood  replied  that 
his  son  Abel,  II/2  years  old,  was  unbaptized,  but  that  he  had  been 
in  prison  and  was  unable  to  take  his  son  to  a  reformed  church 
where  he  could  be  baptized  according  to  God's  oi'dinance.  Asked 
if  he  did  not  consider  the  English  Church  a  church  of  God  replied, 
"No."  Mr.  Greenwood  told  the  Bishop  that  every  congregation 
of  Christ  should  be  governed  by  a  pastor,  teacher  and  elder  and 
by  no  other  than  that  Christ  appoints.  He  would  excommunicate 
the  Prince  (Queen)  as  well  as  all  members  of  the  church  who  dis- 
obeyed the  teachings  of  the  word  of  God.  He  would  make  no  ex- 
ception of  the  Prince.  "The  Scriptures  set  down  sufficient  laws 
for  the  worship  of  God  and  government  of  church  which  no  man 
may  add  to  or  diminish.  Her  Majesty  is  not  the  supreme  head 
of  the  church." 

Barrowe's  first  examination  was  on  the  afternoon  of  his  arrest 
before  the  Archbishop,  Archdeacon  and  Doctor  Cosin.     He  pro- 


32  Greenwood  Genealogies 

tested  stoutly  against  his  arrest  without  a  warrant  but  to  no  effect. 
An  effort  was  made  to  bind  Barrowe  by  an  oath  to  attend  the 
Estabh'shcd  Church,  but  he  refused  to  take  the  oath.  Eight  days 
afterwards,  527  November,  Barrowe  was  taken  to  Lambert  before  a 
synod  of  bishops  and  a  dean,  when  a  long  sheet  of  accusations  was 
read  against  him.  He  admitted  that  much  of  the  matter  was  true 
but  not  all,  and  demanded  that  witnesses  against  him  should  be 
sworn,  whereupon  Whitgift  (head  of  Corpus  Christie  College), 
losing  his  temper,  burst  out  "Where  is  his  keeper?  You  shall 
not  prattle  here.  Away  with  him.  Clap  him  up  close.  Let  no 
man  go  to  him.  I  will  make  him  tell  another  tale  yer  I  have  done 
with  him." 

On  the  9th  of  March,  1589,  Archdeacon  Hutchinson  visited 
Mr.  Greenwood  at  the  Fleet,  saying  he  had  come  by  virtue  of  a 
commission  from  Her  Majesty  to  confer.  Mr.  Greenwood  de- 
clined to  have  anything  to  say  until  he  could  have  pen  and  ink 
and  a  fellow  prisoner  as  a  witness  of  the  conversation,  on  the 
ground  that  he  had  been  wickedly  slandered  and  his  cause  falsely 
reported  by  the  bishops  and  especially  by  one  Dr.  Some.  The 
pen,  ink  and  witness  being  granted,  the  archdeacon  read  some 
questions,  mainly  as  to  whether  a  church  made  up  of  members 
who  were  called  together  by  the  blowing  of  Her  Majesty's 
trumpet,  received  into  the  church  without  conversion  and  repent- 
ance and  consisting  of  all  sorts  of  profane  people  could  be  consid- 
ered a  true  church  of  Christ.  Very  little  progress  was  made  at 
the  interview  and  when  the  archdeacon  went  awa\^  he  insisted  on 
carrying  with  him  all  the  notes  that  had  been  taken  of  what  passed. 
He  was  prevailed  upon  to  leave  them  in  the  hands  of  Mr.  Calthop, 
the  witness,  but  Mr.  Greenwood  says :  "No  sooner  was  I  gone  and 
locked  up  than  the  wardens  were  sent  to  the  gentleman  for  the 
papers,  who,  declining  to  deliver  them  without  our  consent,  the 
archbishop's  servant  came  and  took  them  away." 

Eight  days  after  this.  Mar.  17,  1589,  the  archdeacon  came  to 
see  Mr.  Greenwood  again,  bringing  a  witness  of  his  own  and  hav- 
ing the  doors  locked  upon  them  with  no  other  person  present 
except  the  two  turnkeys  of  the  jail,  one  of  whom  acted  as  scribe. 
On  this  occasion  the  argument  was  mainly  upon  the  question 
whether  John  the  Baptist  received  to  his  baptism  those  Phari- 
sees and  Sadducees  whom  he  called  generations  of  vipers,  the  arch- 
deacon insisting  that  he  did  and  Mr.  Greenwood  contending  that 
while  the  vipers  may  have  been  present  they  took  no  part  in  the 
baptism,  except  as  onlookers. 

In  one  interview  the  archdeacon  had  with  Mr.  Barrowe,  the 
latter  complained  of  his  many  years  of  illegal  imprisonment  and 
close  confinement  and  was  told  by  the  archdeacon  that  "You 
should  be  most  happy,  for  the  solitary  and  contemplative  I  hold 


Execution  of  John  Greenwood  33 

the  most  blessed  life ;  it's  the  life  I  would  choose."  Mr.  Barrowe 
meekly  replied :  "Could  you  be  content,  Mr.  Andrews,  to  be  kept 
from  exercise  and  air  for  so  long  a  time,  matters  so  necessray  to 
a  natural  body?"  "I  say  not,"  was  the  answer,  "that  I  would 
want  air." 

In  an  interview,  Apr.  13,  1589,  between  Greenwood  and  Bar- 
rowe and  clergymen  of  the  English  church,  the  prisoners  state, 
"Things  were  disorderly  handled  and  there  were  manifold  cavils 
and  shifts,  shameless  denials  of  manifest  truths,  and  most  un- 
christian contumelies,  scoffs  and  reproaches  against  our  persons." 
It  ended  with  Greenwood  and  Barrowe  being  required  to  set  down 
in  brief  the  reasons  why  they  persisted  in  refusing  to  return  to 
the  Church  of  England,  which  they  did  in  these  words  : 

That  the  people  of  the  church,  as  they  stand,  are  not  orderly 
to  the  faith,  but  stand  mingled  together  in  confusion. 

The  ministry  set  over  the  people  is  not  the  true  ministry  of  the 
gospel  which  Christ  has  appointed. 

The  administrations  and  worship  of  the  church  are  not  ac- 
cording to  the  word  of  God. 

The  ecclesiastical  government,  officers  and  canons  are  not  ac- 
cording to  the  testament  of  Christ  and  are  anti-christian  and 
popish. 

That  the  sacraments  of  baptism  and  the  Lord's  Supper  as  ad- 
ministered in  the  Established  Church  are  not  true  sacraments. 

That  infants  ought  not  be  baptized  according  to  the  form  of 
baptism  now  in  the  Church  of  England. 

That  it  is  not  lawful  to  use  the  Lord's  prayer  publicly  in  the 
church  for  a  set  form  of  prayer. 

That  all  set  and  stinted  prayers  are  merely  babblings  in  the 
sight  of  the  Lord  and  not  to  be  used  in  public  Christian  assemblies. 

That  the  public  prayers  and  worship  of  God  in  England  as  it 
is  done  in  the  Established  Church  is  false,  superstitious,  popish 
and  not  to  be  used  in  any  Christian  congregation. 

While  in  prison  both  Greenwood  and  Barrowe  wrote  several 
books  which  were  produced  under  difficulties  that  would  have 
crushed  the  spirit  of  men  of  weaker  fibre  and  inferior  courage. 
Denied  proper  writing  material  they  used  such  scraps  of  paper 
and  bits  of  material  as  was  secretly  brought  to  them  by  friends 
from  the  outside.  When  one  piece  of  paper  was  written  over  it 
was  taken  away  and  another  piece  as  secretly  furnished.  These 
pieces  of  paper  were  taken  to  Holland  where  the  writing  was  put 
into  print  and  the  books  published.  The  Holland  printers  had  to 
make  what  they  could  of  the  writing,  but  on  the  whole  they  did 
their  work  fairly  well.  These  books  treated  of  the  religious  belief 
of  Greenwood  and  Barrowe  and  contained  the  interviews  between 
them  and  the  English  Church  officers,  and  although  300  years 


34)  Greenwood  Genealogies 

have  passed  since  their  publication,  some  of  these  books  are  yet 
found. 

In  the  autumn  of  1592,  for  some  reason  not  apparent,  there 
was  a  rehixation  of  the  rigor  with  which  Greenwood  was  treated 
and  he  was  allowed  to  leave  the  Fleet,  either  on  bail  or  on  his  per- 
sonal promise  to  appear  when  required,  and  he  went  to  live  with 
Roger  Rippon,  in  Southwalk.  Barrowe  remained  in  jail.  Rip- 
pon's  house  was  one  of  those  at  which  the  members  of  a  secret 
church,  formed  by  Mr.  Greenwood  four  or  five  years  before  had 
held  its  meetings.  Mr.  Greenwood,  now  that  he  was  out  of  prison, 
met  with  these  people,  and  was  appointed  their  doctor  or  teacher, 
but  the  bishops  were  alarmed  by  what  they  heard  of  the  spread  of 
Separatism  and  on  Dec.  5,  1892,  Mr.  Greenwood  was  again  ar- 
rested and  committed  again  to  the  Fleet  with  Barrowe.  This  time 
he  was  arrested  at  the  home  of  Edward  Boyse  on  Ludgate  Hill. 

On  March  23,  1593,  Greenwood  and  Barrowe  were  brought  to 
trial  at  the  Old  Bailey  in  London.  They  were  charged  with  pub- 
lishing and  dispensing  seditious  books ;  the  proofs  of  the  charge 
were  found  in  the  writings  which  they  had  published  while  in 
prison.  Their  sedition  consisted  in  denying  Her  Majesty's  eccle- 
siastical supremacy  and  attacking  the  existing  ecclesiastical  or- 
der. On  the  3d,  11th  and  20th  of  March  Barrowe  had  been  cited 
before  Chief  Justice  Sir  John  Popham  and  Attorney  General  Lord 
Ellesmere  and  examined  as  to  his  opinions  and  his  authorship  of 
certain  books.  Barrowe  avowed  his  convictions  of  the  truth  of  his 
treatises  and  among  other  things  expressed  his  opinion  that  the 
established  government  of  the  Church  of  England  was  unlawful 
and  anti-christian. 

Greenwood  had  been  examined  on  the  11th  and  20th  and  con- 
fessed to  his  authorship  of  the  books  laid  to  his  charge.  Robert 
Bowie  and  Robert  Stokes  examined  and  testified  on  the  19th  as  to 
the  way  the  books  of  Greenwood  and  Barrowe  had  been  printed. 
Daniel  Studley  and  James  Forster  testified  to  the  printing  also  of 
the  books.  The  latter,  who  described  himself  as  a  physician  and 
master  of  arts,  confessed  having  written  some  part  of  the  Green- 
wood's and  Barrowe's  book  entitled  "A  Brief  Description  of  the 
False  Church." 

The  answers  of  Greenwood  and  Barrowe  at  the  trial  was  a  gen- 
eral denial  of  the  charges  brought  against  them  but  they  were 
found  guilty  and  sentenced  to  be  hanged. 

The  next  morning,  March  24,  1593,  preparations  were  made 
for  their  execution  but  they  were  reprieved.  Certain  doctors  and 
deans  were  then  sent  to  the  prisoners  to  confer  with  them  but  the 
prisoners  claimed  an  open  or  public  discussion,  which  was  refused 
them.     On  the  31st  of  March  the  prisoners  were  conveyed  to  the 


1112993 

Execution  of  John  Greenwood  35 

place  of  execution  very  early  and  secretly,  where  being  tied  by 
the  neck  to  the  tree,  were  permitted  to  speak  a  few  words.  They 
declared  their  innocence  of  all  malice  or  ill  intent  and  exhorted  the 
people  to  obey  and  love  the  Queen  and  magistrates  but  to  follow 
their  leaders  no  further  than  they  followed  Scripture.  They  were 
then  in  the  act  of  pra3^ing  for  the  Queen  when  they  were  again  re- 
prieved. This  time  as  the  result  of  a  supplication  to  the  Lord 
Treasurer  that  "in  a  land  where  no  Papist  was  put  to  death  for 
religion,  theirs  should  not  be  the  first  blood  shed  who  disagreed 
about  faith  with  what  was  professed  in  the  country,"  and  desired 
conference  to  be  convinced  of  their  error.  But  only  six  dsLjs  was 
gained  by  this  clemency. 

The  law  that  Greenwood  and  Barrowe  were  convicted  under 
did  not  well  apply  in  their  case  and  the  prelates  having  introduced 
a  bill  into  Parliament  that  would  apply  were  much  alarmed  when 
the  bill  came  down  to  the  Commons  with  its  modifications  and  lest 
the  prisoners  should  escape  execution  they  were  secretly  and 
early  on  the  morning  of  Apr.  6,  1593,  taken  to  Tyburn  and  there 
hanged  without  ceremony. 

After  the  death  of  Greenwood  and  Barrowe,  Parliament  of 
England  enacted  a  law  "To  Retain  the  Queen  Majesty's  subjects 
in  Their  Due  Obedience"  which  read:  "That  if  any  person  over 
16  years  of  age  shall  be  absent  from  church  for  a  month,  or  by 
writing,  printing  or  speech  shall  attempt  to  persuade  any  of  her 
Majesty's  subjects  to  deny  the  Queen's  ecclesiastical  supremacy 
or  shall  attempt  to  persuade  them  from  coming  to  church  or  shall 
be  present  at  any  unlawful  meeting  for  religious  worship  they 
shall  be  committed  to  prison  without  bail  until  they  conform  and 
make  submission.  If  for  3  months  they  refuse  to  conform  they 
are  to  be  banished  from  the  realm.  If  they  fail  to  leave  the  coun- 
try or  return  without  license  they  are  to  be  hanged  as  felons." 

Immediately  after  the  passage  of  this  act  most  of  the  Separ- 
atist prisoners  were  released  from  jail  and  several  hundred  of  them 
streamed  to  Holland.  Among  the  first  that  fled  were  the  members 
of  the  secret  church  in  London  of  which  John  Greenwood  had  been 
pastor.  The}'  crossed  the  sea  in  separate  companies  as  they  were 
able  and  within  three  or  four  years  most  of  them  had  settled  in 
Amsterdam.  At  one  time  56  members  of  John  Greenwood's  secret 
church,  while  holding  a  service  among  the  sand  hills  at  Islington, 
were  surprised  and  arrested.  They  were  "committed  without 
neither  meat,  drink,  fry  or  lodgings,  nor  were  their  friends  al- 
lowed to  have  access  to  them ;  husbands  and  wives  were  purposely 
put  into  different  prisons  ;  some  had  not  a  penny  about  them,  so 
that  not  only  they  but  their  poor  families  were  in  wretched  cause. 
All  was  contrary  to  law  etiquette  and  conscience." 


36  Greenwood  Genealogies 

On  May  22,  1593,  John  Penry,  a  graduate  of  Cambridge  Uni- 
versity and  a  member  of  John  Greenwood's  secret  congregation, 
was  hanged  at  St.  Thomas  Waterings  in  London.  Gov.  Bradford, 
in  his  "Dialogue,"  gives  these  additional  names  of  Puritans  who 
were  publicly  executed — William  Dennis  at  Thetford,  Norfolk, 
and  John  and  Elias  Coppin  at  Bury  St.  Edmunds.  A  great  many 
Puritans  who  were  committed  to  jail  died  in  prison.  Some  were 
horse  whipped,  some  branded  with  hot  irons  and  some  kept  in 
chains. 

John  Greenwood's  definition  of  a  church  was :  A  company  of 
faithful  people  separated  from  the  unbelievers  and  heathen  of  the 
land,  gathered  in  the  name  of  Christ,  whom  they  truly  worship 
and  readily  obey  as  their  only  king,  priest  and  prophet,  joined 
together  as  members  of  one  body,  ordered  and  governed  by  such 
officers  and  laws  as  Christ  in  his  will  and  testament  hath  hereunto 
obeyed. 

It  is  interesting  to  notice  how  John  Greenwood  and  members 
of  the  church  he  founded  struck  upon  some  of  the  simple  forms  of 
religious  observance  that  have  remained  characteristic  of  the 
Congregational  Church  to  this  day:  One  Daniel  Buck,  a  writing 
master,  deposed  9  March,  1593,  that  when  he  joined  the  com- 
pany "he  made  ye  protestation  that  he  would  walk  with  the  rest 
and  yt  so  long  as  they  did  walk  in  the  way  of  the  Lorde  and  as 
farr  as  might  be  warranted  by  the  word  of  God;  that  Greenwood 
took  water  and  washed  the  faces  of  them  that  were  baptised  saying 
onely  in  ye  administration  of  the  sacrament  'I  do  baptise  the  in  ye 
name  of  the  Father,  of  the  Son  and  of  the  Holy  Ghost  and  with- 
out Godfather  and  Godmother';  and  that  at  the  Lord's  supper 
five  white  loaves  or  more  were  sett  upon  ye  table  and  that  the 
pastor  did  break  ye  bread  and  then  deliver  it  unto  some  of  them 
and  the  deacons  delivered  to  the  rest,  some  of  sd  congregation 
sitting  and  some  standing  about  the  table  and  that  the  pastor 
delivered  the  cup  unto  one  and  he  unto  another  till  they  had  all 
drank  using  the  words  at  ye  delivery  thereof  according  as  is  set 
down  in  the  eleventh  of  Cor.  ye  24  verse." 

Henry  Barrowe  was  unmarried  and  a  man  of  some  property, 
which  he  willed  to  the  Puritan  Church  at  his  death.  His  money 
paid  for  the  printing  of  the  religious  works  he  and  Mr.  Green- 
wood wrote  in  prison. 

The  execution  of  John  Greenwood  at  Tyborn  is  recorded  on 
the  records  of  Corpus  Christie  College,  Cambridge,  Eng.,  and  the 
offence  is  given  as  "writing  against  the  Book  of  Common  Prayer." 

After  the  imprisonment  of  John  Greenwood,  one  Francis 
Johnson  became  pastor  of  the  Greenwood  church  in  London  and 
when  the  members  fled  to  Holland  he  became  pastor  of  the  Am- 
sterdam Puritan  Church. 


Execution  of  John  Greenwood  37 

The  Rev.  John  Greenwood  was  son  of  James  Greenwood  by  his 
second  wife,  Elizabeth,  dau,  of  Edward  Mawde.  His  grandfather, 
Thomas  Greenwood,  m.  Margaret,  dau.  of  Thomas  Draper  of 
Brodelsthom.  Rev.  John  Greenwood  m.  and  his  only  child  was 
Abel,  b.  1585,  who  was  grandfather  of  Thomas  Greenwood,  who 
settled  in  Newton,  Mass.,  1665. 


GREENWOODS  IN  HOLLAND 

The  famous  little  vessel,  Mayflower,  which  landed  its  cargo  of 
102  Pilgrims  from  Holland  at  Plymouth,  Mass.,  in  Dec,  1620, 
had  no  person  b^'  name  of  Greenwood  on  board,  yet  the  State  rec- 
ords in  the  archives  of  Leyden,  Amsterdam  and  Rotterdam  show 
the  presence  of  Greenwoods  among  the  Puritans  who  had  separ- 
ated from  the  established  church  and  fled  from  England  to  Hol- 
land to  escape  persecution.  The  exodus  of  these  religious  people 
from  England  begun  immediately  following  the  execution  of  Rev. 
John  Greenwood  at  Tyburn,  in  1593,  and  was  continued  to  1612  or 
later.  From  the  Amsterdam  records  we  learn  of  a  William  Green- 
wood, from  Norwich,  whose  betrothal  to  Rachel  Pettes  is  recorded 
on  Nov.  24,  1617,  Sam.  Singleton  and  Robt.  and  Margaret  Hop- 
kins being  witnesses.     No  record  of  marriage  is  found. 

The  Leyden  records  tell  of  a  John  Greenwood,  from  London, 
who  matriculated  in  philosophy  at  Leyden  University  July  9, 
1625,  aged  20.  He  was  then  living  in  the  family  of  John  Keble, 
from  Canterbury,  a  wool  comber.  The  records  show  his  betrothal 
to  Bridget  Robinson  May  10,  1629,  with  witnesses  Sam.  Lee,  a 
hat  maker,  Thomas  Nash,  Eliz.  Nash  and  Bridget  Robinson, 
mother  of  the  bride.  The  marriage  occurred  May  26,  1629.  The 
marriage  record  says  he  "is  a  young  man  from  the  Brownists' 
camp."  As  the  Puritans  in  Holland  were  called  Brownists  the 
locality  where  they  lived  may  have  been  known  as  Brownists' 
Camp.  This  John  Greenwood  matriculated  in  theology  at  Leyden 
University  May  22,  1634,  aged  28,  and  was  then  yet  living  with 
John  Keble.  Bridget  Robinson,  whom  John  Greenwood  m.,  was 
daughter  and  second  child  of  Rev.  John  Robinson,  })astor  of  the 
Puritan  church  in  Leyden.  This  church,  a  prosperous  body  of 
English  refugees,  numbered  300  members.  The  name  Brigdet  was 
formerly  common  among  English  women.  Even  Oliver  Cromwell, 
the  Puritan  leader  of  England,  begun  his  letters  to  his  wife  with 
"Dear  Biddie."  The  Leyden  records  show  Bridget  Robinson 
Greenwood  to  have  m.  2d,  William  Lee,  of  Amsterdam,  July  25, 
1637.  The  national  council  of  American  Congregational  Churches 
have  a  tablet  erected  in  Leyden  to  the  memory  of  Rev.  John  Robin- 
son, the  father  of  Bridget,  and  of  the  Pilgrims  who  came  to  Amer- 
ica in  1620,  nearly  all  were  from  Rev.  John  Robinson's  church. 
There  were  two  Puritan  churches  in  Amsterdam  at  same  time. 

The  Leyden  records  disclose  also  the  marriage  of  Lacharian 

38 


Geeenwoods  in  Holland  39 

Greenwood,  Sept.,  1647,  to  Jannetie  Bruynal,  a  girl  from  Col- 
chester. A  son  was  b.  to  this  couple  Apr.  3,  1657.  Mr.  Green- 
wood had  some  difficulty  with  the  magistrates  about  this,  a  second 
marriage. 

Amsterdam  records  show  the  death  of  Anna  Greenwood  Jan., 
1636,  as  wife  of  Paul  Diers  de  Ras.  Her  first  husband  was  a  Mr. 
Schas. 

Rotterdam  records  show  the  baptism  of  Thomas  Groenewont 
(Greenwood)  Dec.  31,  1647.  His  marriage  is  recorded  as  having 
occurred  in  1676. 

From  Rotterdam  records  it  appears  that  Francis  Greenwood, 
an  Englishman  and  merchant,  was  m.  1671.  His  family  consisted 
of  a  wife  and  two  daughters. 


SOME  NOTABLE  GREENWOODS 

John  Greenwood,  a  school  teacher,  matriculated  as  a  pensioner 
of  St.  Johns  College,  Cambridge,  Eng.,  in  1559.  Obtained  his 
B.  A.  degree  in  1561  and  M.  A.  degree  in  1565.  Was  master  of 
the  grammar  school  at  Brentwood,  Essex,  Eng.,  where  he  died  at 
an  advanced  age  in  1609.  His  only  work  was,  "Syntaxis  et  pro- 
sodia,  Versiculis  Compositar,"  published  in  Cambridge,  Eng., 
1590. 

James  Greenwood,  grammarian,  was  for  a  time  usher  to  Ben- 
jamin Morland,  at  Hackney,  Eng.,  but  soon  after  1711  opened  a 
boarding  school  at  Woodford  in  Essex,  Eng. ;  later  was  master 
of  St.  Paul's  School,  London,  which  position  he  held  until  his 
death,  12  Sept.,  1737.  He  left  a  widow,  Susannah.  Was  author 
of  "An  Essay  Toward  a  Practical  English  Grammar,  Describing 
the  Genius  and  Nature  of  the  English  Tongue" ;  12  mo.,  London, 
1711 ;  2d  edition  1722,  3d  edition  1729,  5th  edition  1753.  After- 
wards he  published  an  abridgement  under  the  title  of  "The  Royal 
English  Grammar,"  which  he  dedicated  to  the  Princess  of  Wales. 
The  4th  edition  of  this  appeared  in  1750  and  an  eighth  edition 
1770.  He  also  wrote  "The  London  Vocabulary,"  English  and 
Latin,  put  into  a  new  method  proper  to  acquaint  the  learner  with 
things  as  well  as  pure  Latin  words,  adorned  with  26  pictures.  His 
last  work  was  "Virgin  Muse." 

John  Greenwood,  b.  in  Boston,  Mass.,  Dec.  7,  1727,  a  portrait 
painter,  son  of  Samuel  Greenwood,  a  merchant,  by  his  second  wife, 
Mary  Chamock,  and  a  nephew  of  Prof.  Isaac  Greenwood  of  Har- 
vard College,  a  descendant  of  Miles  Greenwood  of  Norwich,  Eng. 
Li  1742  was  apprenticed  to  Thomas  Johnson,  an  artist  in  water 
color,  heraldric  painting,  engraving  and  japanning.  In  1752  was 
with  the  Dutch  Colony  of  Surinam,  where  he  remained  five  years, 
executing  in  that  time  133  portraits  which  brought  him  8025 
guilders.  In  1758  he  studied  in  Amsterdam  and  was  instrumental 
in  establishing  there  the  Academy  of  Art.  In  1763  he  perma- 
nently settled  in  London,  Eng.,  and  became  a  member  of  the  in- 
cor})orated  "Society  of  Artists  of  Great  Britain."  Among  his  dis- 
tinguished works  of  art  are:  "Frans  Von  Mieris  and  Wife,"  "A

Boston,  d.  in  Cincinnati  6  Nov.  1885.  He  removed  with  his  par- 
ents to  Ohio  in  1817  and  in  1832  established  on  the  Miami  Canal 
the  largest  iron  works  in  the  West.  During  the  Civil  War  the 
works  were  employed  in  behalf  of  the  Federal  government.  He 
built  machines  that  rifled  3,000  smooth  bore  muskets  in  a  day 
and  cast  150  bronz  field  guns  in  a  brief  period.  A  turi'et  monitor

One  of  the  oldest  manufacturing  concerns  now  in  England  is 
that  of  William  Greenwood,  Jr.,  spinner  and  manufacturer  at 
Oxenhope,  under  the  present  management  of  Jas.  Frederick  Green- 
wood and  younger  brother.  The  firm  was  established  in  1761  by 
a  Greenwood  and  has  been  in  continuous  operation  by  Greenwoods 
since  that  date.  The  line  of  goods  made  is  fine  cloth  for  gentle- 
men's suits. 

Daniel  Greenwood,  b.  Sowerby,  Eng.,  1602,  a  man  of  great 
natural  ability,  was  made  fellow  of  Brasenose  College,  Oxford,  and 
later,  1648,  was  appointed  Principal  of  the  College.  In  1649  the 
degree  of  D.  D.  was  conferred  upon  him  and  in  1651  he  was  made 
Vice  Chancellor  of  the  University.  He  took  an  active  part  in  aid 
of  the  Parliamentary  party  in  England  and  when  the  King  was 
restored  to  the  throne  he  was  ejected  from  his  connection  with  the 
college.  He  retired  to  private  life  at  Studley,  in  Oxfordshire,  and 
after  the  death  of  his  M'ife  he  lived  with  his  nephew,  Rev.  Daniel 
Greenwood,  rector  of  Steeple-Ashton,  near  Dedington,  in  Oxford- 
shire. He  was  buried  in  the  chancel  of  the  church  at  Steeple- 
Ashton  and  a  tablet  is  placed  there  to  his  memory. 

Rev.  Daniel  Greenwood,  son  of  John,  b.  at  Sowerby,  Eng., 
1626,  was  a  widely  known  and  distinguished  clergyman  and  nephew 
of  Daniel  Greenwood,  Principal  of  Brasenose  College,  Oxford.  In 
1653  he  became  rector  of  Steeple-Ashton,  in  Oxfordshire,  where  he 
labored  till  time  of  his  death,  which  was  from  apoplexy,  Oct.  14, 
1679,  aged  53.    A  tablet  to  his  memory  is  placed  in  his  church. 


FIRST  GREENWOODS  IN  AMERICA 

The  first  person  by  name  of  Greenwood  to  settle  in  America, 
so  far  as  obtainable  records  show,  was  John  Greenwood.  English 
shipping  lists  show  him  to  have  been  16  years  old;  that  he  sailed 
from  the  port  of  London,  Jan.,  1634,  on  the  ship  Bonaventure, 
James  Ricrofte,  master.  He  settled  in  Virginia  and  has  descend- 
ants who  are  mentioned  in  this  work. 

The  earliest  Greenwood  to  settle  in  New  England  was  Na- 
thaniel. He  was  from  Norwich,  Eng.,  and  was  a  son  of  Miles 
Greenwood,  a  worsted  weaver  of  Norwich,  where  he  was  baptized 
at  the  chapel  of  St.  Michael-at-Pleas,  Aug.  23,  1631.  He  came 
to  this  country  as  early  as  1654,  then  23  years  of  age,  and  on 
Jan.  24,  1655,  at  Weymouth,  Mass.,  m.  Mary,  the  daughter  of 
Samuel  Allen  of  Braintree,  Mass.  He  engaged  in  ship  building  in 
Boston,  Mass.,  and  for  30  years  successfully  pursued  that  occu- 
pation, his  death  occurring,  as  appears  from  his  tombstone  now 
standing  in  Copp's  Hill  Cemetery,  Boston,  July  31,  1684,  aged 
53.    He  left  a  widow  and  three  children  and  considerable  property. 

On  Nov.  3,  1659,  as  appears  from  Dorchester,  Mass.,  early 
records,  one  Alice  Greenwood  was  m.  to  Robert  Portis  (probably 
Porteous),  the  ceremony  being  performed  by  Major  Humphrey 
Atherton,  a  magistrate  of  Dorchester.  Court  records  show  this 
Robert  to  have  been  a  witness  to  the  will,  signed  Nov.  27,  1645,  of 
one  Lawrence  Buckminister,  a  seaman,  about  sailing  on  a 
voyage.  Robert  was  a  Scotch  tobacconist  and  first  Treas- 
urer of  the  Scots'  Charitable  Society,  Boston,  Mass.,  organized 
6  Jan.,  1657.  He  died  a  widower.  Alice  was  probably 
a  sister  of  Thomas  Greenwood  of  Newton  and  daughter 
of  Thomas  Greenwood  of  Heptonstall,  Eng.  Whether  she 
came  to  this  country  with  friends  or  her  father  is  a  matter  of  con- 
jecture. If  her  father  was  ever  in  New  England  he  left  no  record. 
A  will  of  a  Robert  Porteous,  dated  Boston  June  22,  1681,  proved 
July  28,  1681  (Suffolk  county,  Mass.,  deeds),  bequeaths  his  soul 
to  God,  his  body  to  earth,  his  bones  to  rottenness  and  says  that  he 
shall  be  raised  up  again  the  last  day  and  with  these  eyes  behold  his 
Saviour.  He  gives  10  pounds  to  Daniel  Brewer  and  5  pounds  to 
Nathaniel  Brewer,  both  of  whom  he  calls  brother  and  dear  friend, 
and  remainder  of  his  estate  he  gives  to  Hannah,  his  daughter,  and 
her  husband,  John  Weld.  Evidently  he  had  but  one  child  and  as 
Alice  was  not  mentioned  she  may  have  died  before  the  will  was

made.  Hannah  Porteous,  Roxburj,  Mass.,  records  show,  ni.  Jan. 
22,  1678,  John  Weld,  a  glazier,  of  Roxbury,  b.  June  26,  1653, 
son  of  John  and  Margaret  (Bowen)  Weld  and  grandson  of  Cap- 
tain Josepli  Weld,  Avho  came  to  America  in  1635.  Their  children 
were:  Hannah  (Weld),  b.  Dec.  14,  1681,  d.  Oct.  6,  1683;  John 
(Welb),  b.  Oct.  7,  1683;  Joanna  (Weld),  b.  Sept.  15,  1685,  m. 
Samuel  Lyon;  Abigail  (Weld),  b.  Aug.  19,  1687;  Elizabeth 
(Weld),  b.  June  20,  1692;  Sarah  (Weld),  b.  Nov.  17,  1693,  d. 
Jan.  16,  1708;  Dorothy  (Weld),  b.  June  21,  1695,  m.  William 
Dennison ;  Samuel  (Weld),  b.  May  18,  1697. 

About  1665  there  appeared  in  Boston,  Mass.,  one  Thomas 
Greenwood,  aged  22,  and  one  Samuel  Greenwood,  aged  21.  Sam- 
uel Greenwood  was  brother  of  Nathaniel,  above  mentioned,  and  son 
of  Miles  of  Norwich,  Eng.  He  remained  in  Boston  and  engaged 
in  shipbuilding ;  was  a  public  spirited  man,  often  holding  office  in 
the  gift  of  the  town's  people,  and  at  his  death,  Aug.,  1711,  left  a 
large  property  in  Boston  which  was  divided  among  his  widow  and 
four  children. 

Thomas  Greenwood  was  by  occupation  a  weaver.  He  remained 
in  Boston  a  short  time,  then  removed  to  Weymouth,  Mass.,  and 
finally  settled  in  Cambridge  Village,  now  Newton,  Mass.,  a  short 
distance  from  Boston.  He  was  son  of  Thomas  Greenwood  of  Hep- 
tonstall,  Eng.,  and  possibly  brother  of  Alice,  above  mentioned. 
He  was  baptized  at  Heptonstall  (Eng.)  Parish  Church  June  4, 
1643.  His  grandfather  was  Abel  Greenwood,  who  was  son  of  Rev. 
John  Greenwood,  the  Puritan  separatist  who  suffered  death  for 
his  religious  convictions  at  Tyburn,  Eng.,  Apr.  6,  1593.  Thomas 
Greenwood  was  an  educated,  intelligent  man  whose  judgment  was 
often  sought  by  his  neighbors  and  held  town  office.  At  his  death, 
Sept.  1,  1693,  he  left  an  estate  to  a  second  wife  and  four  children. 

Aside  from  the  four  Greenwoods  last  mentioned  there  are  no 
records  of  other  Greenwoods  permanently  settling  in  New  England 
for  nearly  100  years,  or  until  1760.  The  will  of  Nathaniel  Green- 
wood (Suffolk  County,  Mass.,  records)  mentions  his  cousin  Benja- 
mine  who  is  to  have  £5  when  "his  time  is  out,"  but  no  record  being 
found  of  this  Ben j amine  he  evidently  returned  to  England  after 
serving  his  apprenticeship.  Of  the  Greenwoods  now  in  America 
full  65  per  cent  are  descendents  of  Thomas  of  Newton,  5  per  cent 
descendants  of  Nathaniel  and  Samuel,  and  30  per  cent  descendants 
of  John  of  Virginia,  or  are  later  arrivals. 

Early  English  shipping  lists  contain  these  items:  Robert 
Greenwood,  age  18,  sailed  Nov.  20,  1635,  port  of  London  to  Bar- 
badoes,  ship.  Expedition,  Peter  Blackler,  master ;  was  examined 
as  to  his  conformity  to  the  discij)line  of  the  church  of  England. 

Thomas  Greenwood,  aged  15,  sailed  Apr.  3.  1635.  Gravesend 


First  Greenwoods  in  America  45 

to  St.  Christopher,  ship,  Paul  of  London,  J.  Acklin,  master.  The 
minister  of  St.  Katherins  certified  that  "he  had  been  examined  as 
to  his  conformity  to  the  discipline  and  orders  of  ye  church  of 
England  and  he  did  take  ye  oath  of  allegiance." 

John  Greenwood,  aged  26,  sailed  Jan.  6,  1634,  to  St.  Christo- 
pher and  the  Barbadoes  after  taking  ye  oath  of  allegiance.  Rec- 
ords of  the  parish  of  St.  Michaels,  Barbadoes,  show  the  death  of 
a  John  Greenwood  in  1679. 


IN  GENERAL 

BOOKS  OF  INTEREST 

Two  books  of  exceedinfy  interest  are  in  the  hands  of  Francis 
A.  Thayer,  38  Park  Row,  New  York  City.  Both  are  of  old  print 
and  have  come  down  from  the  sons  of  Thomas^  Greenwood  to  the 
jn-esent  generation.  One  of  these  books  is  entitled,  "Commen- 
taries on  the  Lamentations  of  Jeremiah,"  London,  1602,  in  which 
is  written  the  autograph  avowedly  of  "Rev.  Thomas  Greenwood, 
his  book,  1714."  and  under  "John  Greenwood,  1720"  and  on 
another  fly  leaf — "Jno  Greenwood's  ex  Doro  patris"  without  date. 
The  autographs  are  in  a  handsome  hand.  There  is  also  written: 
"Noah  Greenwood,  1786." 

Another  book,  "The  Sermons  of  Christian  Religion  Delivered 
by  Zacharias,"  has  written  on  the  fly  leaf:  "Abiah  Carpenter,  his 
book  the  25th  April  1659."  "Jno  Greenwood,  his  book,  bought  of 
Capt  Butterworth,  Jan'y  8,  1724."  (Same  fine  hand  as  the  other 
book.)  "Oliver  Greenwood,  his  book,  January  1783."  (In  an  un- 
cultured hand.) 

MISCELLANEOUS  ITEMS 

The  Rev.  Thomas-  Greenwood  made  this  entry  on  one  of  his 
parish  registers  at  Rehoboth,  Mass. : 

"My  hon"^  father  Dyed  (Friday)  Sep""  1st,  1693,  In  y^  even- 
ing." 

In  March,  1770,  there  was  a  tide  waiter  named  Thos.  Green- 
wood, in  Boston,  who  fired  on  the  populace  from  a  Custom  House 
window  at  the  time  of  the  Bloody  Massacre.  He  was  accused  of 
having  killed  Crispus  Attucks,  but  the  jury  decided  that  soldiers 
of  the  29th  Regiment  were  the  guilty  parties.  It  is  not  learned 
that  this  Thomas  was  a  New  England  resident. 

There  are  33  towns  in  the  United  States  and  Canada  bearing 
the  name  of  Greenwood.  They  derived  their  names  from  the  wood- 
land or  forest  that  were  prominent  where  the  places  are  located. 

The  word  Boisvert,  which  means  greenwood  {bois — wood,  vert 
— green)  is  in  very  common  use  in  France  as  a  surname  and  where- 
ever  the  French  language  is  spoken. 

Among  the  Germans  there  is  a  word  written  Gruenwald,  which 
is  used  as  a  surname  and  the  word  has  the  same  significance  as  the 
family  name  Greenwood.

It  is  remarkable  with  the  Greenwood  family  how  the  Christian 
names  James,  John,  Thomas  and  William  were  maintained  and 
have  been  passed  down  from  one  generation  to  another.  The 
Greenwood  wills  recorded  at  York  are  alive  with  these  names, 
while  the  church  registers  at  Heptonstall  and  a[\  other  public 
documents  are  so  full  that  positive  identification  of  individuals 
bearing  these  names  is  difficult.  Even  Thomas  Greenwood,  who 
settled  at  Newton,  Mass.,  1665,  gave  his  own  four  sons  these  same 
names.  In  the  parish  church  registers  at  Heptonstall,  in  the  list 
of  marriages,  we  find,  July  15,  1641,  a  Thomas  Greenwood  married 
Sarah  Crossle^" ;  Oct.  15,  1641,  a  Thomas  Greenwood  married 
Ellen  Wood  and  then  Apr.  30,  1642,  a  Thomas  Greenwood  mar- 
ried Sarah  SutclifFe.  Here  is  a  further  illustration  of  the  fre- 
quency- of  that  one  name  Thomas :  In  1700,  in  the  Wragby  parish 
register,  a  Thomas  Greenwood  is  mentioned  as  curate.  In  1703 
a  Thomas  Greenwood  was  curate  of  LightclifFe ;  1706  a  Thomas 
Greenwood  was  curate  of  Luddenden ;  1712  a  Thomas  Greenwood, 
A.B.,  was  curate  of  Heptonstall  and  held  that  position  until 
1744.  In  1711  a  Thomas  Greenwood  was  pastor  of  the  Baptist 
Church  at  Rodhill  End,  in  Heptonstall.  The  latter  was  a  man  of 
some  means  and  in  1737  gave  the  use  of  a  building  he  had  pur- 
chased to  the  church  society.  Among  the  trustees  of  this  church 
was  a  John  Greenwood  of  Hawksclough  in  Sowerby,  yeoman,  and 
William  Greenwood,  of  Stone  Slack,  in  Heptonstall.  This  Thomas 
Greenwood  died  1742. 


THE  GRAVE  OF  THOINIAS  GREENWOOD 

Tlio  licadstone  indicatiiifr  the  grave  of  Thomas  Greenwood  of 
Newton,  Mass.,  is  3'et,  after  a  lapse  of  over  200  years,  standing 
in  Newton  well  preserved  in  the  old  cemetery  on  Center  Street. 
The  stone  shows  very  little  of  the  long  time  it  has  been  in  place. 
Nothing  is  now  standing  to  mark  the  grave  of  Hannah,  first  wife 
of  Thomas,  who  was  probabh^  buried  here,  but  the  gravestone  of 
her  father,  John  Ward,  and  others  of  the  Ward  family  are  yet  in 
place.  Aside  from  the  gravestone  of  Thomas  Greenwood  there 
are  today  only  four  other  stones  yet  standing,  which  mark  graves 
of  the  many  Greenwoods  who  have  been  buried  here.  These  stand- 
ing stones  are  in  memory  of  Lieut.  Josiah  Greenwood,  aet.  83, 
Thomas  Greenwood,  Esq.,  who  d.  Aug.  31,  1774,  aet.  79,  Mrs. 
Hannah  Greenwood,  consort  of  Thomas  Greenwood,  Esq.,  who  d. 
Dec'r.  23d  1777,  aet.  85,  and  Elizabeth  Greenwood,  dau''  of  Mr. 
John  &  Mrs.  Elizabeth  Greenwood,  who  died  Octo^""  ye  10th,  1755, 
Aged  8  mos  &  10  days. 

The  grave  of  Thomas  Greenwood  is  near  the  back  of  the  an- 
cient cemetery  and  is  close  beside  the  graves  of  the  Wards.  The 
standing  stone,  without  mound,  alone  marks  the  grave.

THO]MAS  GREENWOOD  HOMESTEAD 

To  any  person  a  little  acquainted  with  the  topography  of 
Newton,  Mass.,  the  map  shown  in  the  front  of  this  volume  will 
clearly  show  the  location  of  the  estate  of  Thomas  Greenwood, 
which  he  occupied  at  time  of  his  death  and  which  he  purchased  of 
Isaac  Parker.  Names  of  his  neighbors  and  location  of  their  homes 
are  also  given.  The  map  shows  the  town  of  Newton  as  it  was  in 
1700.  At  present,  1912,  all  parts  of  the  house  of  Thomas  Green- 
wood have  disappeared  and  on  the  site  of  the  Greenwood  home- 
stead is  now  a  very  large  and  elegant  establishment  owned  and 
occupied  by  George  and  Anjie  Armstrong.  This  is  now  a  very 
valuable  part  of  Newton.  Just  when  the  original  house  disap- 
peared is  not  known  for  a  certaint3\  It  was  probably  standing  in 
1841,  when  the  property  was  bought  for  $5,000  by  Ezra  Hutchin- 
son from  William  Ladd.-  On  June  30,  1866,  Ezra  Hutchinson  sold 
to  Francis  M.  Johnson  for  $28,000  and  he  had  evidently  very 
much  improved  the  property  from  what  it  was  when  Mr.  Ladd 
owned  it.  F.  M.  Johnson  built  a  large  and  expensive  establish- 
ment. The  house  was  partly  destroyed  by  fire  after  his  death  and 
stood  in  that  state  till  1896  when  bought  by  Nathaniel  M.  and 
Elbridge  K.  Jewell,  who  rebuilt  it.  No  division  of  the  original 
propertj'  was  made  until  Aug.  1,  1888,  when  Susan  M.  Johnson, 
widow  of  Francis,  sold  a  part  of  the  south  side  to  Mrs.  Hope  V. 
Baker.  The  Newton  boulevard  syndicate  pared  off  a  part  of  the 
estate  and  it  may  have  lost  a  little  on  the  south  side  when  Beacon 
street  was  laid  out.  The  Boston  (Sudbury  River)  aqueduct 
passes  through  the  estate.  The  land  originally  extended  from 
Beacon  to  Hammond  streets.

POSTERITY  OF  THOMAS  GREENWOOD 
FIRST  GENERATION 

1  THOMAS  GREEN WOOD\  a  weaver,  aged  22,  came 
from  England  to  Boston,  1665,  and  two  years  later  settled  in  the 
Southeast  part  of  Cambridge,  now  Newton,  Mass.  He  m.  first,

Mr.  Greenwood,!  d.  interstate,  at  Weymouth,  Mass.,  Sept. 
1,  1693,  aged  50  and  was  interred  in  the  old  burying  ground  in 
Newton,  leaving  an  estate  of  about  £480.  He  was  made  freeman,

stable, selectman,  of  Newton,  1686-71 ;  1690  and  1693,  the  first 
town  clerk,  which  office  he  held  many  years.  He  was  one  of  the 
first  signers  of  a  petition  to  the  general  court.  May  8,  1678, 
asking  that  their  village  be  set  off*  from  Cambridge  and  incorpo- 
rated as  a  new  town.  There  were  64  freemen  in  the  village  and  52 
signed  the  petition  which  represented  that  they  were  crippled  in 
person  and  estate  by  the  late  Phillip's  war ;  that  they  were  at 
great  expense  in  building  and  enlarging  their  meeting  house  and 
in  building  a  new  house  for  their  minister;  that  having  so  many 
families  now  the  law  required  them  to  support  a  school  of  their 

*  William  Ward  came  from  England  and  settled  in  Sudbury,  Mass.,  where 
he  had  lands  granted  to  him  in  1640.  His  eldest  son  John  Ward,  b.  in  Eng. 
1626,  m.  ab.  1650  Hannah  Jackson,  b.  in  London,  Eng.,  1631,  bap.  May  1,  1634. 
(See  Jackson  Family,  p.  57.)  John  Ward  was  a  turner  by  trade,  settled 
in  the  east  part  of  Cambridge  Village,  now  Newton.  His  father-in-law 
conveyed  to  him  and  his  wife,  45  acres  of  land,  upon  which  he  built  his 
dwelling  house  and  also  a  garrison  that  was  used  in  Phillip's  war  and  re- 
mained about  170  years,  till  1821,  having  sheltered  7  generations.  At  the  or- 
ganization of  the  town  of  Newton,  Aug.  27,  1679,  he  was  chosen  one  of  the 
first  selectmen  and  continued  8  years.  He  was  the  firsi  rep.  to  the  general 
court  from  Newton,  and  was  returned  9  years.  He  had  13  children,  Hannah, 
the  eldest,  m.  Thomas  Greenwood.' 

tJohn  Spring  of  Newton,  one  of  the  administrators  of  the  estate  of  Thomas 
Greenwood,  had  a  da.  Abigail,  b.  Feb.  2,  1666,  and  she  is  supposed  to  be  this 
2d  wife  of  Thomas  Greenwood.  She  m.  2d,  Feb.  15,  1697,  Josiah  Fisher,  b.  in 
Sherborn,  Sept.  15,  1655,  son  of  Anthony  of  Dedham.  Josiah  was  rep.  to  the

own  ;  that  the  townsmen  had  imposed  a  tax  of  "three  county  rates" 
without  their  knowledge  or  consent  which  they  considered  harsh 
proceedings.  The  petition  though  actively  opposed,  was  granted 
and  Cambridge  Village  became  New  Town,  Dec.  8,  1688,  which  has 
since  become  Newton. 

On  a  tax  assessment,  Sept.  5,  1688,  for  "2  persons  and  estate 
6s.  8d."  appears  the  name  of  Thomas  Greenwood  as  tax  Commis- 
sioner. His  name  as  one  of  the  Commissioners  also  appears  on  the 
tax  lists  for  Stowe,  Medford,  Charlestown  and  Marlborough  in 
the  summer  of  1688,  the  Commissioners  serving  under  Governor 
Andros. 

Thomas  Greenwood  was  born  at  Heptonstall,  Eng.  The  rec- 
ord of  his  baptism  appears  on  the  register  of  the  old  parish 
church  at  Heptonstall  June  4,  1643,  son  of  Thomas  Greenwood 
of  Heptonstall.  Thomas,  the  father,  was  baptized  at  Heptonstall, 
Feb.  26,  1610,  son  of  Abel  (born  1585,)  who  was  son  of  Rev.  John 
Greenwood,  the  Congregational  martyr,  executed  at  Tyburn, 
Eng.,  Apr.  6,  1593. 

Thomas  Greenwood  learned  his  trade  as  a  weaver  in  his  native 
town  of  Heptonstall,  where  the  establishment  of  woolen  manu- 
facture took  place  at  a  very  early  period.  Members  of  the  Sut- 
cliffe  family  were  manufacturers  of  cloth  in  the  vicinity  of 
Heptonstall  as  early  as  1311.  The  old  Heptonstall  Cloth 
Hall,  which  stood  on  the  North  side  of  the  church  yard  at  Hepton- 
stall, was  long  a  market  place  for  the  sale  of  the  product  of  the 
clothiers  of  the  vicinity. 

The  line  of  ancestry  of  Thomas  Greenwood  back  to  Wyomarus 
runs  through  John  the  priest  given  in  the  ancient  English  pedigree 
of  this  volume.

dorsed but  probably  released  by  the  heirs. 

*Thomas  Greenwood  used  three  "e's"  instead  of  two  in  spelling  his 
last  name.  His  father,  Thomas,  his  grandfather,  Abel,  and  his  great  grand- 
father, John,  the  priest,  used  the  same  method  of  spelling  Greenwood,  but 
the  four  sons  of  Thomas  sjielled  the  name  with  two  "e's"  as  the  name  is 
universally  spelled  today.  Thomas  Greenwood's  method  of  spelling  his  name 
is  but  one  of  the  numerous  ways  used  by  the  earliest  members  of  the  Green- 
wood family  before  any  set  form  was  established  and  it  has  been  an  aid  in 
tracing  his  ancestry.  Previous  to  the  year  IGOO  the  Greenwood  name  was 
variously  written:  Grenwod,  Grenwode,  Grenewod  and  Grenewode.  A  John 
Grenewodde  was  living  at  Grenewodde  Lee  in  1439  and  a  John  Grenwodde  was 
a  curate,  in  Heptonstall,  1520  to  1541.  The  name  William  Grenehude  appears 
in  a  will  proved  at  York,  Jan.  30,  1430.  The  name  Tliomas  Grenewoodde 
appears  in  a  will  dated  Nov.  11,  1543.  A  Luvecock  Grenehod  was  before  the 
court  at  Wakefield  in  the  year  1274.  A  will  of  Joan  Grenehude,  widow,  was 
proved  at  York,  May  14,  1491;  also,  a  will  of  John  Grenehode,  of  Bramham, 
proved  at  York,  Apr.  24,  1484.

Lydia  ,  b.  ,  d.  .     He  d.  Dec.  1,  1766.     Another 

record  (Boston)  says  Jan.  1,  1767.  Mr.  Greenwood  graduated 
from  Harvard  1717,  preached  in  Seekonk,  Mass.;  Mar.  10,  1720, 
he  agreed  with  the  selectman  of  Rehoboth,  Mass.,  to  teach  school 
for  6  months  for  £12  for  the  first  quarter,  and  the  second  quarter 
at  the  rate  of  £45  per  year.  Nov.  14,  1720,  the  town  voted 
"Whereas  the  church  of  Christ  in  Rehoboth  having  made  choice 
of  Rev.  Greenwood  to  preach  the  gospel  amongst  us  for  the 
present,  the  question  being  put  whether  the  town  would  concur 
with  the  churche's  choice,  voted  by  the  town  to  raise  £70  per 
annum  till  we  have  a  minister  settled  amongst  us."  Feb.  13,  1721, 
a  vote  by  the  town  was  taken  for  inviting  Mr.  Greenwood  to  be- 
come the  minister  of  the  west  part  of  the  town  [his  father's  former 
parish].  119  votes  were  cast  in  favor  of  the  measure  and  only 
5  against.  June  10,  1728  the  Rev.  John  Greenwood  and  Rev. 
David  Turner  presented  petitions  to  the  town  for  an  increase  of 
their  salaries,  stating  that  their  present  salaries  were  inadequate 
to  their  comfortable  support,  the  town  in  answer  to  their  petitions 
voted  to  add  to  Mr.  Greenwood's  salary  £20,  and  to  that  of  Mr. 
Turner  £30,  making  each  of  their  respective  salaries  £100. 

Rehoboth,  Dec.  2,  1757. 
To  the  first  church  of  Christ  in  Rehoboth  under  my  pastoral 
care.  Brethren: — Whereas,  by  Divine  Providence  I  am  rendered 
unable  thro  bodily  infirmity  to  carry  on  the  work  of  the 
ministry  any  longer,  after  30  odd  years  labor  therein,  and 
whereas,  you  presented  to  me  the  town's  resolutions  not  to  grant 
any  support  for  another  minister  here  except  I  release  my  salary, 
ye  ministering  lands  and  quit  my  pastoral  office ;  altho  I  think 
it  not  reasonable  in  the  town  to  defer  it,  yet  for  peace's  sake  and 
that  the  gospel  might  not  be  hindered,  I  release  my  salary  from 
the  eleventh  day  of  March  next  as  aforesaid  and  by  the  advice  of 
some  ministers  and  brethren  called  to  advise  in  the  aff^air  and  at 
the  desire  of  this  church,  I  do  likewise  promise  to  ask  and  to 
receive  of  this  chruch  a  dismissal  from  my  pastorate  over  them  as 
soon  as  a  council  of  churches  can  conveniently  sit  for  the  orderly

doing  of  it,  provided  the  church,  particular  persons,  or  the  town, 
or  any  or  all  of  them,  will  come  under  obligation  for  my  support 
and  maintenance  during  my  natural  life  to  give  me  £20  annually 
to  be  paid  one  half  money  and  the  other  half  in  specie  equal  to 
money,  the  first  year  to  be  paid  the  11th  day  of  March,  A.  D., 
1759,  and  so  from  year  to  year  by  the  11th  of  March  successively 
during  my  natural  life  as  aforesaid,  and  that  I  and  my  estate  be 
not  taxed  toward  public  charges.  John  Greenwood. 

These  propositions  the  church  and  the  town  readily  acceded  to, 
and  40  individuals  pledged  themselves  jointly  to  raise  annually 
the  support  required,  agreed  to  give  yearly  various  sums  each 
from  €2  to  2  bushels  of  corn,  or  2  bushels  of  rye.  He  was  suc- 
ceeded by  Rev.  John  Carncs,  a  native  of  Boston.*

'On  the  stone  close  beside  Thomas  Greenwood's  grave,  are  these  words 
still  plain  to  be  read  1898:  "Mrs.  Hannah,  consort  of  Thomas  Greenwood, 
Esq.,  who  died  Dec.  23,  1777,  aged  85."  Jackson's  History  of  Newton  says 
"Thomas  Greenwood  m.  Lydia  ."  Thomas  Greenwood  in  his  will  be- 
queaths "to  Lydia,  my  beloved  wife,"  and  her  petition  to  have  the  will  proved 
is  signed  "Lydia  (her  -(-  mark)  Grenewood."  It  is  possible  she  had  a  double 
name,  tho  that  was  not  common  at  that  time.  We  think  most  likely  a  mistake 
was  made  by  the  stone  cutter  or  the  one  who  ordered  it.  They  named  their 
first  daughter  Hannah  and  she  named  her  first  child  Lydia. 

fThomas  Greenwood's  will  is  dated  Aug.  10,  1774,  in  which  he  makes  his 
son-in-law,  Capt.  John  Woodward,  the  sole  executor,  gives  his  son  Thomas  20 
shillings,  and  to  the  children  of  his  son  John  Greenwood,  "John  my  best  gold 
ring  and  to  Thomas  Judson  my  next  best  gold  ring  and  to  Elizabeth  another 
gold  ring  and  also  20  shillings  to  be  equally  divided  among  them."  All  other 
property  to  his  executor  for  the  maintenance  of  his  wife,  Lydia,  and  at  her 
death  all  remainder  of  property  to  be  equally  divided  between  his  son  Joseph 
and  daughter  Hannah.  The  sums  given  to  Thomas  and  the  children  of  John 
were  considered  their  full  and  just  share  considering  what  they  had  previously 
received.     The  homestead  consisted  of  86  acres  of  land.

206     WILLIAM     GREENWOOD^     (William^,     Thomas^) 
eldest  son  of  Dea.  William  and  Abigail  (Woodward)  Greenwood 

of  Sherborn,  Mass.,  b.  there  Nov.  4,  1721 ;  m. ,  1745,  Abigail 

Death,  b.  Oct.  3,  1723,  d.  Oct.  1,  1814,  daughter  of  John  and 
Elizabeth  (Barber)  Death*  of  Framingham,  Mass.  Mr.  Green- 
wood was  a  carpenter  in  Sherborn,  moved  to  Dublin,  N.  H.  as 
early  as  1762,  as  he  worked  on  the  roads  that  year,  and  was  the 
second  English  settler.  Nine  other  persons  from  Sherborn 
located  there  soon  after.  May  4,  1762  he  was  chosen  one  of  a 
committee  to  measure  and  establish  the  bounds  of  a  ten  acre  lot 
for  a  meetinghouse,  which  he  erected.  He  was  also  chosen  to 
provide  a  preacher  for  two  or  three  Sundays  as  soon  as  may  be. 
The  first  meeting  of  the  proprietors  of  Dublin  held  in  that  town, 
was  at  Wm.  Greenwood's  house,  1764 ;  only  two  previous  meetings 
had  been  held,  and  those  were  held  in  Dunstable,  Mass.  In  1765 
he  located  permanently  with  his  family  on  lot  8,  range  6.  The 
town  of  Dublin  was  incorporated  1771,  when  it  had  23  voters. 
At  a  meeting  of  the  township  proprietors  Feb.  14,  1771,  at  the 
house  of  Eli  Morse,  William  Greenwood  was  chosen  moderator, 
and  was  one  of  a  committee  to  sell  the  lands  of  delinquent  pro- 
prietors to  pay  their  taxes.  Apr.,  1773,  the  meetinghouse  being 
completed,  he  was  chosen  one  of  a  committee  to  plan  out  the  pew 
ground.  He  and  his  brother  Joseph  were  on  the  committee  of 
inspection  to  see  that  the  resolves  of  the  Continental  Congress 
be  observed.  He  and  his  sons,  Eli  and  Joshua,  served  in  the  Revo- 
lutionary War.  The  hardships  of  these  pioneers  are  hard  for 
people  of  this  time  to  fully  appreciate.  It  is  said  that  on  one 
occasion  the  snow  being  so  deep  that  horse  or  ox  teams  could  not 
move,  Mrs.  William  Greenwood  put  on  snow  shoes,  took  a  half 
bushel  of  corn  on  her  shoulder  and  went  by  marked  trees  seven 
miles  to  Peterboro,  the  nearest  mill,  had  the  corn  ground  and 
returned  home  the  same  day.  Mr.  Greenwood  was  killed  at  the 
barn  raising  of  Dea.  Benjamin  Leonard,  June  28,  1782.  It  is 
probable  he  served  in  Revolutionary  War  under  Capt.  Joseph 
Parker,  paid  July  18,  1776,  £10.25,  and  under  Capt.  Solomon 
Stone,  Col.  Enoch  Hale,  July  21,  1777-Sept.  26,  1777.

England,  and  hais  been  misspelled  or  Englified  in  this  country  into  Death.

and  at  the  end  of  one  year  they  presented  me  with 
a  silver  service  costing  $104,  of  which  I  am  very 
proud.  I  made  paper  for  35  years,  made  many  im- 
provements ;  was  the  first  in  the  world  to  make  paper 
of  wood.  I  invented  the  only  machine  for  making

given  24  hours'  notice  to  leave  town  because  I  was 
*a  damned  abolitionist.'  I  left  in  six  weeks.  I  built 
four  of  the  best  paper  mills  in  the  country  and  was 
credited  by  good  judges  with  making  paper  equal 
to  the  best  English,  French  and  German.  My  relig^

George  Barber  (Raymond)  b.  Apr.  21,  1822;  d.  July 
4,  1896.  He  spent  his  early  days  on  his  father's 
farm.  When  nearing  his  majority,  he  bought  his  free- 
dom and  went  to  Grafton  to  learn  the  carpenter's 
trade.  On  his  return  to  Winchendon  worked  for  a 
couple  of  years  for  Major  Sidney  Fairbank,  whom 
he  then  bought  out  and  formed  a  partnership  in  car- 
pentering and  building  with  Charles  E.  Forristall.  Mr. 
Raymond  later  bought  his  partner's  share  in  the  busi- 
ness, Mr.  Forristall  continuing  in  his  employ  until 
1865,  when  he  took  the  sole  charge  of  the  business  for 
one  year,  Mr.  Raymond  being  obliged  to  give  his  en- 
tire attention  to  the  pail  factory  at  Harrisville.  In 
1867  Raymond  and  Forristall  built  the  Steam  Mill  in 
what  Avas  then  almost  a  v/ilderncss.  In  1868  a  co- 
partnership was  started  by  ilaym.ond,  Forristall  and 
C.  J.  Rice  for  the  manufacture  of  blinds,  chair  frames, 
getting  out  lumber,  hay  rakes,  etc  Additions  were 
made  to  the  business  in  various  directions  until  it 
assumed  large  proportions.  On  the  death  of  Mr. 
Forristall  the  two  remaining  partners  continued  the 
business,  and  after  the  death  of  Mr.  Rice.  Mr.  Ray- 
mond associated  himself  with  hi?  son,  Henry  M.  Ray-

mend  who  has  for  several  years  had  the  entire  active 
management  of  the  business,  his  father  remaining  a 
silent  partner.     By  force  of  circuaistances  he  became 
interested   in   the   grocery   business,    in   the   Tucker- 
Rice  block,  of  which  he  owned  1-3  interest.    His  eldest 
son,  Hcrvey  T.,  h;is   for  some  years   had  the  active 
managership  of  the  store,  his  father's  name  being  the 
onl}"^  visible  sign  of  his  connection  with  the  business. 
He  has  filled  many  responsible  positions  in  town  af- 
fairs,   selectman    from    1861-6,    assessor    in    1863-4, 
overseer  of  the  poor,  committee  for  making  plans  for 
the  brick  school,  and  various  other  stations  of  trust 
and  esteem.     He  also  had  the  entire  charge  of  raising 
troops  for  the  War  of  the  Rebellion.     He  joined  the 
First  Congregational  church  when  a  boy,  but  in  young 
manhood  drifted  away  from  the  tenets  of  his  child- 
hood, but  in  1859  he  became  a  member  of  the  Baptist 
church  and  has  ever  since  been  a  consistent  and  in- 
fluential worker.     Many  of  the  poor  of  the  town  have 
cause  to  revere  his  memory  for  kindnesses  heaped  up, 
pressed  down  and  running  over.     A  man  of  great  in- 
tegrity and  energy,  he  was  ever  amenable  to  reason 
and  ready  to  yield  his  own  way  to  the  wish  of  the  ma- 
jority.  For  fifteen  years  he  had  been  a  sufferer  from  a 
chronic  and  hereditary  form  of  rheumatism  that  led  to 
ossification  of  the  hip  joints,  so  that  he  walked  with 
extreme  difficulty  and  with  the  aid  of  canes.     He  m.

of  the  U.  S.  District  Court,  was  born,  (occupied,  1890,

was  constantly  aiding;  a  man  heartily  beloved  by  all.

Chadwick,  1).  in  London,  Oct.  15,  1852.  Mr.  Whitney 
was  a  man  of  rare  natural  ability,  indomitable  energy, 
and  ])erseverance.  At  the  age  of  17  he  went  to  Cal- 
ifornia in  a  sailing  vessel  'round  Cape  Horn,  arrived 
in  San  Francisco  with  a  working  capital  of  ten  cents, 
and  made  his  way  to  Placer  County  gold  mines.  But 
gold  digging  did  not  suit  his  taste,  and  he  engaged  in 
shooting  birds  and  larger  game  for  the  city  market, 
thus  accumulating  his  first  capital.  In  about  a  year 
he  returned  to  New  England  and  commenced  shipping 
goods  to  his  brothers  in  San  Francisco,  with  whom  he 
was  a  partner  in  business,  but  soon  transacted  the 
business  on  his  own  account.  During  the  Civil  War 
he  was  a  member  of  the  independent  corps  of  cadets  of 
Massachusetts,  guarding  the  distinguished  Confed- 
erate officers,  prisoners  of  war  in  Fort  Warren  in 
Boston  harbor,  1862,  and  after,  as  captain  of  Co.  F, 
second  Massachusetts  regiment.  Having  been  quite 
successful,  in  1865  he  retired  from  commercial  life  and 
having  from  boyhood  a  strong  passion  for  athletic 
and  out-door  life,  he  sought  the  mountains  and  parks 
of  Colorado,  making  his  way  across  the  plains  before 
any  railroad  existed  and  while  the  route  was  inces- 
santly threatened  by  hostile  Indians.  While  in  Colo- 
rado, he  wrote  the  first  book  on  that  comparativel}' 
unknown  territory.  It  attracted  wide  attention,  and 
proved  a  forcible  argument  for  Colorado's  admission 
to  statehood.  He  was  appointed  sole  commissioner 
of  Colorado  to  the  Paris  Exposition  in  1867,  and 
received  the  first  gold  medal,  awarded  unanimously  by 
the  international  jury,  who  recommended  him  to  the 
especial  consideration  of  the  Emperor,  from  whom 
he  received  the  decoration  of  the  Legion  of  Honor 
for  his  exhibit,  which  was  considered  the  best  in  the 
American  department.  So  great  was  his  popularity 
in  Colorado  that  the  Democrats  and  Republicans 
unitedly  nominated  him  for  the  U.  S.  Senate,  and 
would  have  unanimously  elected  him  had  he  not 
preemptorily  declined ;  whereupon  the  legislature 
passed  complimentary  resolutions,  recognizing  his  em- 
inent services,  had  them  handsomely  engrossed  upon 
parchment  and  forwarded  them  to  him  in  the  name 
of  the  Commonwealth.  He  made  four  round  trips 
across  the  plains  to  the  Rocky  Mountains  before  the 
completion   of  the  Union   Pacific   Railroad   in   1868,

two  of  which  were  in  1865,  while  the  Indian  wars  were 
raging.  He  purchased  land  largely,  improved  it  by 
irrigation,  and  in  1875  had  11,000  acres  in  grain.  He 
was  the  first  to  raise  and  cure  raisins  on  a 
large  scale,  having  a  vineyard  of  250  acres,  and  in 
1877,  sliipped  the  first  carload  that  ever  went  East 
from  the  state  of  California.  He,  with  others,  owned 
nearly  a  million  acres  of  grazing  land  in  New  Mexico, 
300,000  acres  of  which  were  fenced  and  stocked  with 
about  20,000  cattle.  Almost  unaided,  he  built  and 
equipped  the  Silver  City  and  Deming  Railroad  of  50 
miles,  in  New  Mexico,  was  president  of  it  two  years, 
and  later  sold  it  to  the  Atchison,  Topeka  &  Santa  Fe 
Co.  He  had  a  splendid  residence  on  his  Spring  Valley 
ranch  of  25,000  acres  in  Rocklin,  Cal.,  surrounded 
by  extensive  grounds,  beautifully  laid  out  with  many 
miles  of  picturesque  drives.  He  also  had  a  summer 
resort  in  the  woods  of  Maine,  "The  Pines,"  at  Range- 
ley  Lakes,  where  he  spent  the  summers.  He  was 
public  spirited,  building  railroads  and  reservoirs  for 
irrigation  and  was  forward  in  every  enterprise  for  the 
public  good.  He  was  president  of  the  Placer  County 
Board  of  Trade,  and  officer  or  director  in  many  indus- 
trial enterprises ;  d.  at  Monterey,  Cal.,  Jan.  17,

mechanic  in  East  Templcton  and  Boston,  Mass.   Though 
his  life  covered  but  a  brief  period  and  was  constantly 
restrained  from  following  out  any  special  line,  his  me- 
chanical ingenuity  was  striking.     In  the  space  of  two 
years,  while  employed  in  a  mechanical  pursuit,  he  in- 
vented and  put  into  use  a  machine  for  boring  wooden 
chair  seats  for  caning,  wonderful  for  the  rapidity  with 
which  it  did  the  work,  and  one  which  in   all  its   main 
features  is  used  today  by  all  chair  manufacturers.    He 
improved  a  machine  for  squaring  and  cutting  to  a  given 
length  the  stock  used  in  wooden  chair-seats,  by  means 
of  double  circular  saws.    Though  he  believed  no  machine 
could  be  made  that  would  run  prepetually  by  its  own 
force,  he  gave  his  mind  to  the  study  and  did  construct 
one  that  would  run  several  hours,  which  was  regarded 
as  a  great  wonder.    It  was  generally  believed  that  had  he 
been  permitted  to  live  to  the  allotted  age  of  man,  and 
had  better  health,  he  would  have  taken  rank  among  the 
distinguished  inventors  of  the  country.     He  m.  July  28,

Mr.  Greenwood  was  a  farmer  in  Dorchester,  that  portion  in- 
corporated, 1868,  as  Hyde  Park.*  Leaving  his  home  at  Sherborn 
at  the  age  of  19,  Mr.  Greenwood  walked  to  Boston,  owning  nothing 
of  this  world's  goods  but  the  clothes  he  wore  and  50  cents  in 
money  in  his  pocket.  He  obtained  employment  in  the  ice  business ; 
later  in  Faneuil  Hall  market,  where  he  earned  sufficient  money  to 
purchase  one  of  the  stalls  (No.  99-101).  At  the  market,  with  his 
brother  Bela,  he  remained  until  he  bought  the  farm  now  bearing 
his  name  in  Hyde  Park,  Mass.  By  public  acknowledgment  of  the 
faith,  he  joined  the  Baptist  Church  at  Hyde  Park  in  the  fall  of 
1863,  and  on  July  17,  1864,  with  his  wife,  was  baptized  in  the 
Neponset  River,  near  the  Fairmont  Avenue  bridge.  He  was  a 
member  of  the  school  board  of  the  town  of  Dorchester,  was  public 
spirited,  gave  land  across  his  farm  for  the  construction  of  Har- 

*The  Greenwood  Grammer  School  at  Hyde  Park  was  named  for  Elihu 
Greenwood,  who  owned  a  large  farm  at  the  time  the  town  was  laid  out  and 
incorporated,  Apr.  22,  1868  (it  was  originally  a  part  of  Dorchester),  sold  a 
large  portion  of  it  to  the  Hyde  Park  Land  and  Building  Company;  but  gave 
the  school-house  lot  to  the  town  and  an  eight  room  school  building  was  erected. 
Twenty  years  later  the  house  was  destroyed  by  fire  and  a  new  one  erected 
on  the  same  spot.  The  Greenwood  district  has  seen  the  largest  school  at- 
tendance of  any  in  town,  and  is  rapidly  increasing.  Greenwood  Avenue  and 
Greenwood  Square  were  also  named  in  honor  of  Elihu  Greenwood.

Society.  He  commenced  life  penniless  but  left  an  estate  valued

S782  Charles  Freeman  (Brown)  b.  Nov.  12,  1833,  converted 
at  17  he  united  with  the  First  Baptist  church  in  Cam- 
bridge, and  ever  after  maintained  a  consistent  Chris- 
tian character.  He  was  a  druggist  and  his  profes- 
sional services  were  sought  for  the  medical  dispensary 
on  board  the  U.  S.  schooner,  John  Griffin,  of  the  mor- 
tar fleet,  under  Com.  Farragut.  He  distinguished 
himself  by  devotion  to  his  particular  line  of  service ; 
was  incessant  in  his  labors  for  the  sick  and  dj'ing,  and 
contended  heroically  with  the  diseases  peculiar  to  a 
southern  climate.  In  the  absence  of  a  chaplain,  he 
served  as  such,  and  showed  in  the  midst  of  severe  temp- 
tations and  trials  the  mighty  power  of  grace,  and  how 
that  can  fit  the  most  unassuming  to  perform  even 
bolder  and  nobler  deeds  than  facing  the  cannon's 
mouth.  A  naval  comrade  says  of  him:  "He  was  a 
living  epistle,  known  and  read  of  all  men,  nor  do  I  ever 
remember  meeting  with  any  person  so  thoroughly  con- 
scientious and  unswerving  in  religious  principle.  We 
reached  the  Bahama  Banks  in  company  with  another 
vessel  on  Sunday  morning  and  came  to  anchor.  The 
captains  of  each  agreed  to  spend  the  day  fishing  at 
the  Orange  Keys  and  invited  Charles  to  accompany 
them.  His  reply  was,  'I  should  be  happy  to  go  with 
you  on  any  other  day,  but  dare  not  go  on  the  Lord's 
day.'  They  arrived  at  the  navy-yard  at  Pensacola  on 
Sunday  morning,  and  again  the  captain  invited  him  to 
go  with  them,  but  he  replied,  'It  is  against  my  princi- 
ples to  go  visiting  on  Sunday.'  On  our  arrival  at  Key 
West  he  asked  the  captain  for  the  privilege  of  holding 
meetings  on  board,  which,  after  a  week  or  two,  was 
granted,  and  it  was  a  thrilling  sight  to  see  him  stand- 
ing on  the  quarter  deck,  surrounded  by  the  ship's 
company,  lifting  up  his  voice  to  his  Heavenly  Father 
for  a  blessing  to  rest  upon  the  officers  and  men  of  our 
vessel.  I  have  seen  the  captain  on  his  knees  after  leav- 
ing our  meeting.  I  shall  never  forget  when  at  the 
close  of  the  day  we  held  our  evening  devotions,  how 
he  would  lift  up  his  heart  to  God  in  behalf  of  those 
around  him  who  had  never  experienced  a  Savior's

she  d.  May  15,  1909.  Mr.  Chapman  was  a  dry  goods 
merchant  in  Milwaukee,  Wis.,  and  his  firm  was  one  of 
the  largest  in  that  city.  He  was  a  wide-awake,  vigor- 
ous business  man.  Much  interested  in  music ;  at  the 
age  of  15,  with  but  six  weeks  of  practice,  he  played 
the  violin  in  the  church  choir  of  his  native  town  of 
Gilead,  Me.  He  first  entered  the  di'y  goods  business  in 
the  store  of  C.  F.  Hovey  &  Co.,  Boston,  Mass.,  as  clerk, 
where  he  served  in  that  capacity  six  years.  In  1850, 
with  his  brother,  Hannibal,  he  opened  a  store  on  Han- 
over street,  Boston,  under  the  firm  name  of  T.  A.  & 
H.  G.  Chapman.  For  seven  years  here  and  on  Tre- 
mont  street  in  Boston  the  firm  carried  on  the  dry 
goods  business.  In  1857  Mr.  Chapman  moved  to  Mil- 
waukee, Wis.,  and  under  firm  name  of  Hasset  &  Chap- 
man established  a  dry  goods  store  on  East  Water 
street  of  that  city.  Mr.  Hasset  retired  at  end  of  five 
years  and  was  succeeded  by  Mr.  Charles  Endicott, 
who  remained  in  partnership  with  Mr.  Chapman  three 
years.  Since  that  time  and  until  his  death  Mr.  Chap- 
man was  alone  in  business.  In  1885  Mr.  Chapman's 
store,  including  its  entire  contents,  was  destroyed  by 
fire  with  a  loss  amounting  to  nearly  $700,  000,  the

property  being  only  partially  insured.  Mr.  ('iiH})nmn 
received  letters  and  telegrams  of  sympath}'  from  the 
trade  far  and  near  for  his  great  loss  and  being 
strongly  urged  by  the  ])eo])le  of  Milwaukee  to  rebuild 
he  erected  a  new  building  covering  a  space  on  the 
ground  floor  of  over  17,000  square  feet  and  so  artistic 
in  style  and  so  well  arranged  for  business  that  the 
building  is  regarded  as  one  of  the  most  perfect  retail 
dry  goods  stores  in  the  country  and  a  store  the  city 
of  Milwaukee  is  justl}'  proud  of.  At  time  of  his 
death  Mr.  Chapman's  employes  with  their  families 
numbered  more  than  the  combined  population  of  the 
town  of  Gilead,  Me.,  his  native  place.  In  1888  Mr. 
Chapman  was  offered  the  nomination  of  Governor  of 
Wisconsin,   but   declined   it.

his  zeal  to  subdue  the  forest,  like  most  of  his  contempararies, 
he  cut  down  too  many  trees.  He  was  one  of  the  farmers  who  left 
his  hay  in  the  winrow  and  his  grain  in  the  yard  and  marched  to  the
